Challenge four:

framed

Framing (or sub framing, as some call it) is one of my favorite compositional techniques because it easily guides the viewer to your subject and naturally creates layers of interest in your photo.

 

For this challenge you will look for elements in your environment to create a natural frame around your subject. Examples would be:

  1. Doorways and Windows
  2. Fence lines
  3. Trees and Foliage
  4. Other subjects (like the horse above!)

When framing your subject, try to get your subject mostly contained within the frame's opening.

“Good composition is like a suspension bridge - each line adds strength and takes none away.”
