Framing: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week your challenge is to take and share an image that uses the technique of Framing.

Framing is a great compositional technique that is great to have in your photographic bag of tricks. It can do many things for your image including:

  • giving it a sense of depth
  • draw the eye of those viewing an image to a particular element in the scene
  • bring a sense of organization and containment to a scene
  • add context to your shot

For more on the benefits of framing and how to do it – check out our previous post – Frame Your Images (where there are also some good examples of different types of framing to give you some ideas for your own shots.

Don’t forget – to frame a shot you don’t necessarily need a door or window – you can shoot through almost anything and frame your images (overhanging branches, archways, under a bridge, through… well almost anything).

Once you’ve taken your best “Framing” image, upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it below or embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so. Please note it sometimes takes us a while to approve comments with images as there’s a moderation queue – particularly over the weekend.

If you tag your photo on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag it as #DPSFRAMING to help others find it. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

PS: don’t forget to check out some of the great photos shared last week in the ‘My Camera and I’ challenge.
