Best Of Opposing Poses
One character's pose is dominant. The other characters' poses react to it.
The characters' poses create interesting negative spaces between them.
One Character Opposed to a Group
Margaret is dominant character. Other kids are together a separate element. Within that element, Tommy has dominant pose with strongest line of action-directed at Margaret.
BACKGROUNDS FRAME THE POSES
Even the backgrounds and their negative shapes can frame the actions of the characters.
Every element in a good picture is balanced against the main action and pose.Action and reaction
between characters is very important and appealing to look at.
