Fill Your Frame: Photo Composition

A couple of days ago, I gave my thoughts on the Rules of Composition and I would like to follow that up with this article from Picture Correct, talking about the importance of "Filling Your Frame" in your photos. It was written by  Etienne Bossot, who runs Pics of Asia, offering photo tours to South East Asia and who for the past four years has been teaching thousands of people at all photographic levels. She is also a commercial and wedding photographer in Southeast Asia.

The more I teach photography, the more I realize that this is something I need to repeat… about 10 times a day. This is actually now one of the first things I talk about when talking about composition, once the camera settings have been covered. Fill Your Frame. To read the full article, which includes some lovely images from Etienne, follow this link:......  Fill Your Frame: Photo Composition
Here are three very different images of mine, where I have filled the frame with the subject.

As usual, my work is available to purchase as original  Wall Art, in a variety of formats from stretched canvas or framed prints, metal or acrylic prints,or simply as standard prints for you to mount in your favourite picture frame. They are also available as greeting cards or printed onto iPhone or Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows, duvet covers or tote bags. Simply click on the  image and you will be taken to my gallery where you will find full details.
