|What have you learned about the art of framing and composition?
Let someone good do it.
That they are the foundation of a good image; after a solid idea that is...
I believe it to be an innate art form, you can learn it, but I think, and hope others agree, that it comes naturally for me.
Whatever works...throw out the rules!
shoot shoot shoot and lots of it. one day it arrives.
I've finally come to the conclusion that like the tenson of shooting in a square frame. Even though I shoot 35mm, I leave myself room to crop the final picture to a square or near square.
I can mat and mount, however I rarely do. Also I have my taste when it comes to this, however that's not what all like
It all comes down to the moment that you pick up your camera and press the button. I think it is innate. You see it and you capture it.
I've learned that one needs to explore many options.
Do it one way to make a viewer feel comfortable, then maybe the other to make 'em dizzy....LOL
Understand the rules and break them. Be deliberate, and unrepentant, constantly look for new perspectives.
I do not do framing except for myself and my shows. ˆleareed compoistion from studing old masters, especially Ansel Adams.
Get rid of the triangles in the corners. Always fill your frame with what is important.
I always used to compose my shots within the constraits of standard image, matting and frame sizing. Certainly to some degree I still do, but often I will shoot or crop images to conform to non-standard sizing like squares or circles of others. It is so easy to get caught in the trap that the image most capture everything in the 2:3 image.
