We’re talking about ways to frame a photo when composing it.

I took this shot from the top of our property this past fall. This is a common way to use framing – utilize available branches and trees.

For another example of framing a subject – in this case the Pacific Ocean – click here. In this photo, sand dunes have been used as the frame. I used a telephoto lens, which compressed the shot. The ocean is not really as close to the dunes as it looks in this shot.
