When you see a striking photograph, do you wonder why it holds your interest? Most likely, it is the framing photography. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant shows you how paying attention to framing photography will yield memorable results. One approach is to frame your main subject with other elements in your scene: trees, natural arches, doors, windows, and background people.

Another approach is to use lighting contrast such as trees in silhouette framing a distant subject, or a dark cave opening to a lighted person or object. A third approach is a blurry foreground framing the face of an animal or person. Framing photography is all about controlling the viewer’s interest. Ian will show you examples of this framing photography technique in his own magnificent images captured from around the world.
