Composition: Framing

Framing images is something that I am naturally drawn to in creating images.  When I was painting many of the works I created included visual framing through windows or archways so that naturally flowed over into my photography and I find many of my travel and architectural photographs include this.
  Although these two ideas are one way to frame and image the options are boundless and could include the use of trees, cave or rock formations, buildings, fences, bridges or even people. Using framing in your photographs brings depth and draws the viewers focus to the main subject.
