Framing in composition

This week I want to showcase some images that use framing in composition to create a successful image. It is one of the most difficult elements to master, but one of the most important in terms of create depth in your images. In a nutshell this is what frame is all about:

  • adding a foreground object into your scene that frames, or helps highlight your subject
  • sometimes involve stepping back from your original composition and looking for elements to use as a frame
  • usually using a shallow depth of field to put the foreground, framing element out of focus
  • the frame is there to set the scene, and draw the viewer into the image
