So if you reading this blog then you might of seen the selection of photo’s that I had uploaded yesterday of the city Southampton! Now you may think that those beautiful pictures just flow out of me but nooo… I had to think a lot about Framing! Exciting I know. For example if I wanted to capture the intricate detail of a butterfly’s winds on camera then I would use….. An Extreme Close Up! And for example I would not use a medium shot.
See the difference?
There we are, here is another problem that you may face while trying to frame your shots. Here I have two friends of mine in cartoon form and I was wondering how I would go about framing them… This is what I would and wouldn’t do.
Yes a brilliant “2 shot”!
So as you can see, if you think about the framing of the shots that you use in your pictures/films, then you can give across the right message! Of course the story you are trying to tell differs from person to person, but with some shots allowing you to capture a close up of the female actor when she starts to cry after just having her heart broken; and a wide shot allowing you to show the magnitude and drama of a bloody battlefield you can see that the right shot can make all of the difference!
