Week 45 of 52.2 Framed is all about centering the subject. This is often seen as a beginner technique, because the resulting composition isn't viewed as being dynamic enough-as compared to other compositions such as last weeks' rule of thirds compositions. A center composition can emphasize simplicity in a single subject, symmetry or create a sense of space. Centering is particularly effective in a square crop. When used purposefully, centering can produce a very visually striking image.
This weekend my boys were playing at the lake and I used it as an opportunity to play with center compositions. The mosaic image is a favorite of Matt as he was coming out of the lake and shaking the water out of his hair.
