Do you struggle with composing for the background? Forget the background! This week we're asking you to Fill The Frame. This is more of a composition challenge - eliminate clutter, distractions and anything unnecessary in the background or foreground so that it's your subject that takes up the entirety of the frame to create an impactful and captivating image. The idea is to fill the entire frame of your photograph with your subject, allowing it to take center stage and draw the viewer's eye to its details. When filling the frame, consider using different perspectives, angles, and focal lengths to create unique and interesting compositions. Don't be afraid to get up close and personal with your subject or use a lens with a long focal length and zoom into your subject. Your subject should be clear and defined. Pay attention to details such as lighting, color, and texture, as they can make your subject stand out and enhance the overall impact of your image. Before you even THINK of pressing the shutter, run your eye along the edges of the frame. Is your subject overflowing the edges, or nearly touching it? Good, you have filled your frame. If there are any unwanted spaces, remove them by physically moving closer or zooming in. Remember, your legs are the best crop tool you have, so don't be afraid to use them.
