Photo 52: Within the Frame

Creative Complexity: Filling the Frame {Week 41}

While the setting is often important in a photograph, sometimes our artistic intention is to draw full attention to our subject. Filling the frame edge to edge with our subject(s) by moving closer, zooming in, or cropping the image in post-processing eliminates background distractions and forces the viewer to examine the subject in close detail. For a portrait —particularly close-ups of the face— one's personality and mood can be captured in a way that would get lost at more of a distance.  The image below is of my youngest son, his rolls and chubby cheeks most certainly filling the frame.
