Framing and Composition in Photography




One of the ways to achieve a creative photograph is to compose the object in such a way that it’s framed by certain objects in its surrounding. The framing technique is done by doing just that; taking an object in your target’s vicinity to create a frame. Other than creating a stronger point of view, the framing technique can also be used to fill up any empty space around the subject.
The framing technique can be done by using objects such as tree branches, windows, bridges, other people, any anything else you can think of. Framing doesn’t always have to surround the subject, it can be objects located on both sides of the subjects or only on one side, depending on what you feel is right.


Advantages of the framing technique:


1. Showcases a sense of depth and layers (the most important thing about the framing technique is the placement of the objects on the foreground of your subject, creating more depth).


2. It guides the eyes of the viewers towards the subject of the photo (a strong point of interest).


3. Takes the audience inside the point of view of the photographer.


4. Fills up any unwanted empty space surrounding the subject.
