Composition: Framing


I have been looking at framing the subject using whatever is available. I have picked flowers and held them in front of the camera.

Flowers held up in front of the lens create soft shadows to create interest.

Stood behind objects to highlight something.

The sunset in the window glass was beautiful. The rest of the scene was messy. Shooting from behind a tree removed distractions and helped focus on the glass.

And looked for backgrounds to envelope the subject.

The light frames the flower and the rest of the bush creates an interesting background.

I love it. I love the effect and interest it can create. I enjoy the challenge of finding a new, more interesting way of photographing something. Isn’t photography great?!
