P52-9-21 Technique: Frame it (naturally)
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 07-12-2020, 04:43 PM

Naturally framing photography is sometimes overlooked as a compositional technique. By taking advantage of natural frames, however, you can add focus and depth to an image.

Tips for Using Natural Framing to Improve Your Composition by Anthony Epes

Photos for the Week #21 competition are to be taken between Jul 13, 2020 and Jul 19 26, 2020

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

I had to decide between two photos, one was a more conventional shot of a man walking his dog, framed by overhanging leafy branches, and this one of frames within frames. Naturally, I chose the less conventional one.

This is about as framed as I get for this challenge. Shot through leaves and branches for the frame.

OK, I'm closing this one and will go with RGlasel's very interesting shot. Besides filling the brief very well, it is also a busyish image, but retains a center of interest with that partial view of the car. Also a lot of other interesting things for the eye to explore. I would though, clone out the aerial from the car in the foreground. Congrats Rick!

Stay well and safe everyone!

I agree with you Noel, but when I tried the healing clone tool in Lightroom, it made a mess. I would have to carefully blend in a background after precisely masking and removing the aerial, which I'm afraid to say is beyond my photoshopping skills.

Photoshop's Content-aware Fill works miracles in just a few clicks. Patch up inconsistencies after use, or leave it as-is, whichever works better for you. Dunno if considered heavy PP, it's so easy nowadays.
Congratulations Rick!
