This week it is all about framing in our after school photography clubs! We are using a piece of mount board as a literal frame to help physically frame up a photograph, and photographing things close up and far away, using multiple frames, working together, and framing shadows and clouds. Here are a few shots from our talented students.

Framing is a technique used by many famous photographers to draw attention to the subject. Some photographers, like Ioana Burtea use a literal frame to do this.

Others, like Ansel Adams and Michael Freeman have used objects found in the environment to frame a shot.

Frames can be found everywhere and our sharp shooters were excellent at finding them in their school yard! Below are just a few examples.
