Proportion is a principle of art.
def. the size relationships between parts of an artwork to an another.
  • Used to shw emphasis, distance in space, and balance.
Note: by itself it has little meaning. Only when compared to the size of another object can we understand its size.

This photo is amazing because the beads in the picture are so much larger compared to the model than in actual life. It makes the normal sized model look "doll like". Without the beads, this picture could look bland, instead it adds to the story of the picture. It has a whimsical feel.
