The musings of a budding photographer

A framed lake

with one comment

I seem to be in love with black and white images. I think it might be due to the time of year, colours tend to be a little washed out and uninspiring but black and white provides punch.

Todays image is no exception, but adds an extra dimension: Framing.

Framing is the use of objects within the scene to create a natural frame around the image, in this case the trees and floor frame the lake. The key is to ensure that the frame doesn’t dominate the image but rather leads the eye nicely into the picture, the frame in this image achieves that nicely.
