Project #1 Natural Frame

Project: Use a natural frame in your images.

We see images framed before us all the time but how often do we consciously put a natural frame within the frame of our images? As photographers we should practice different composition techniques on a regular basis. Looking for new and different ways to compose an image, ones that we don’t regularly use, will help. Using a natural frame is a great technique for landscape and architectural photographers alike. The basic idea here is to use something in the foreground to help frame the main subject of your image. Adding a natural frame can help add depth and dimension to your images.

I’m sure you already have a few ideas but if you don’t, think about arches, windows and tree branches. Finding a natural frame is not that hard to do and helps to add interest to your images.

Once you have made some images for this project feel free to share your results in our Facebook Group.
