|What have you learned about the art of framing and composition?
There is no perfect shot you can always explore its potential by moving in and removing extraneous clutter.
At college we learnt how to mount our photos, and i've been sticking by that ever since.
This can't be taught, you've got it or you haven't got it.
All you can do is improve it, but you don't learn that.
That I should dedicate more time and thought to it when exhibiting!!!
Do you mean 'in camera' or mounting a picture in a frame?
I think it should be the art of 'cropping' either in camera or at a later date.
It's the key to a great photograph.
very little and that I hate doing it.
Painters 500years ago formulated all the rules of composition, things we take for granted today Mostly they work extremely well, as if a natural force, but when they are broken they can occaisionally become a powerful tool.
Use a 45 deg angle, measure to the inside and double and triple check before you cut.
First thing you are supposed to learn isn't it?
Remember to leave some room tho around the edges.
Your eye should be your guide - train it.
Great framing can make or break a picture.
I am a great believer in the rule of the golden mean, the rule of thirds and
positive and negative space in a picture
Frames go around pictures. This holds true if the picture is on the wall, printed in a book, or on a computer screen. As for pictures hanging on the wall, I think frame shops charge too much money and you can get just as good a frame in a discount store. Mats on the other hand are something entirely different. Frames enhance the room or page, while mats enhance the photograph.
Send it out to the professioanls so I dont have to worry abou it.
Composition or actual picture frames? I began as a picture framer in a gallery and museum.
I dont need to.
