Framing – Photography Composition

This post is part of our Rules of Composition in Photography series.

Framing is simply using other objects in your photograph to frame the main subject. This is probably one of the easier composition techniques in photography. Framing brings more depth to the picture and a better focus on what the main subject is.

Here are 25 well framed examples.
