How to frame the shot is one of the most important decisions a photographer makes in getting a perfect capture. This week Patti has asked us to “fill the frame”. For those unfamiliar with the phrase, it means to get in close so that your subject fills the frame. Filling the frame is a very powerful tool in a photographer’s toolbelt.
Sometimes I fill the frame when editing the photo and I’ll crop it to get the shot I want. The balloon above and the three below are examples of cropping to fill the frame.
These next photos are examples of filling the frame when the photo is initially taken. It makes for a more dramatic photo.
Of course, any time I take out my macro, it’s a fill the frame day!
