    Excellent example of “geometric frame composition”. The circle is used to center attention without appearing to do so, hence the reason Obama is centered inside the “halo”. I get the point of the video, but I am fairly certain this is pretty standard for presidential photo composition.

    • I see what you’re saying Colin… so i did a little research. It would appear that the halo effect of the Presidential seal only goes as far back as President Bush 43. It appears only a few times and one of themis rather unflattering in the sense of a contrite looking Bush almost as if giving the appearance of a man realizing failure. There are comparatively more halo effect photos of Obama including a handful of him with the original Obama campaign logo as the halo producer. There were none that I could find of Clinton or of Reagan using that effect. I didn’t look for Bush, Sr. If anything, this is a new effect for photos but one that has been used with mulitple props. If you do a “President ******** speech halo” search on google, you’ll find a variety for each president(obviously, put in a name and not just the ****. LOL)
