Psychology of group photo composition

Hypothesis: people appearing in the centre of the photo are perceived to be more important.

Experiment: assemble a group of people, and photograph them in every possible combination. Ask respondents to rank the importance of the people in the photo, with different groups of respondents getting different photos to look at. Control for the specific people (as tall people are perceived as more important). Look for patterns.

It would also be interesting to explore whether there are any cultural differences in the findings.
