Frame Your Shot (When Appropriate)

Photography is as much about remembering what we've already learned, as it is about trying new techniques. One of the first compositional tips most of us were taught is framing the shot. It's not appropriate for every photo, obviously, but sometimes it really helps transform a rather bland scene into something a bit more interesting.


For example, if you need to take a picture for real estate work, or just to show someone a location, this is the perfect time for framing. Chances are the subject isn't that scintillating, and a nearby tree can spice up the shot.

Just something to keep in your back pocket as you're out exploring the world with your camera.
