  • Natural Framing

    This week's assignment is "Natural Framing". Basically borders, nature paths, windows, all of these setup a nice natural frame outline for the focus of the subject.
    Some links for reference:
    Digital Photography School
    Frame Your Picture

    An example (I actually had a few to choose from!)
    Picture from 5th Weekend KCRF 2007

    A review of the rules might be helpful:

    1. The image you submit should be taken between the June 11 (when it was announced) and June 25 (up until one of the moderators closes the the mini-contest).

    2. EXIF data needs to be intact. It helps if you can include the main points (including camera, lens, date taken, ISO, shutter speed and aperture) in the text of your message.

    3. Your post must include "Assignment: Natural Framing" to show your permission to count it for the contest.

    4. Only one entry per member (if you can't restrain yourself until the end of the first week you can post two or three separate pictures but your entry should be in a separate post and the only marked with the text above).

    For everyone, please do not repeat other people's photos by quoting them until the contest is over. If you want to comment on or discuss an entry you can use a link to it (or just delete the picture from the quoted text).

    Next week's assignment? A few months back we did an assignment for Hands so this time we'll go for a slightly more challenging subject. Feet.
    Cameras:
    Canon Rebel XSi (450D)
    Canon Lenses: 18-55mm IS kit lens, 50mm 1.8, EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
    Accessories: Lowepro Fastpack 250 backpack, Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash
    OK to edit & repost my images in the DPS forum only.

    Assignment: Natural Framing

    My road trip included three days at Turkey Run State Park (Indiana). A variety of hiking trails, including one along a stream bed.

    I was using the overhang on the right as the "frame" but kept the foliage above the gully to preserve the natural beauty of the place.

            Early post

            Zetson: I usually work a week ahead and que my entry up on the home computer Tuesday night. That way, I get the first "gully" picture.


            But thanks for the nice comment.

              Assignment: Natural Framing

              Here is my entry for this week's assignment. I was camping on the shore of Swartswood Lake in Swartswood New Jersey. The trees made a natural frame for the view of the trees in and on the shore of the lake as well as their reflection in the lake. I really liked the intense green of the trees reflected in the water.

                Based on Seltzer's post, what is the definition of "natural"? Can it be a man made frame as in the picture used as an example?

                  My little sister, dog Molly and I went for a long walk this weekend. I got a little caught up in nature you could say and learning how to take pictures on a Canon 20D , I didn't notice how far behind I was until I snapped this picture.For a quick snap I don't think it turned out too terrible.

                        Liberty Falls Creek

                        I emphasized the natural side of this assignment with this shot of the swift waters, of Liberty Falls seen in the background, being framed naturally by the trees in the foreground.
