It may interest you to know that framing enables you to emphasize the subject you are capturing. In fact, it is a technique that event photographers use to bring attention to the subjects they are snapping.
Irrespective of the nature of framing you are using, it helps your subject to get more attention of the viewers. If we are to go by Wikipedia explanation of framing, “it is a photography technique used to bring focus to a subject”.
So, if you want the image you are capturing to be interesting, engaging and make your subject stand out, you must understand the concept of framing. Generally, there are 4 types of framing you should take advantage of as an event photographer, these framings are;
#1. Architectural Element
The architectural element is one of the most popular framing techniques photographers use. This type of framing involves elements that are permanent to the environment in which you placed your subject. You can use doorways, archways, window frames etc. Framing photographs using the architecture of the event you are covering makes them exceptionally important.
#2. Environmental Element
You can also frame your photographs using an environmental element. Using environmental elements like trees, grasses, flowers or bushes will draw more attention to your subject. However, you have to blur the environmental element’s foreground so that they will not overshadow your subject.
#3. Shape Or Subject Enclosing Elements
Every event photographer should use shapes or other subject enclosing elements for framing. This will also bring attention to the subject and make the image look amazing.
You can always use the available light or shadow to frame your subject. This is very effective as it helps to highlight your subject as well as the beautiful light around.
