Photography Composition Tip #3: Fill the Frame

I think often times when you take photos you include too much in the frame. To make sure your subject is the emphasis you need to fill your frame with it! Now this doesn’t mean you have to always zoom in major close. Include enough of the background to set the scene or create the look you are going for without taking away the emphasis from your subject. I have included a couple sample photos that one of my parents took on our trip in Kawaii. The first is from further away so me and my family are barely noticed. Another photo features my family where we fill the frame and you can see us a lot better! Now if you are wanting to document the whole cave then you should make sure you include it. Just make sure you only include elements that help complete the photo without creating distractions for your main subject.
