Framing in Photography - Part 1
This will be a three part training course. In part one, I will be discussing the Basics of Framing.
Framing is the technique of drawing attention to the subject of your image by blocking other parts of the image with something in the scene. In this context Framing refers to using elements in the scene to surround some parts of the image in order to draw the viewer’s attention to the subject. For example, you might shoot through an arch, a doorway, or pulled back curtains to create a frame effect. Similarly, you might use branches or hedges to cover up space around the subject, drawing the viewer’s eye right to where you want it to be.
The role of any rule of composition is to draw the eye into a photograph. Framing refers to using elements of a scene to create a frame within your frame. For example, you might shoot through a doorway, pulled back curtains, branches, fences, tunnels, arches or through a crowd to highlight your subject.
