Filling the frame

I recently saw a photo which consisted of a square of pale pink wall. On the very far right of the image, was a rectangle of black, and tiny cluster of brighter pink flowers.

I loved it! The simplicity and minimalism of the shot is so totally outside my photographic aesthetic or vocabulary.

Seeing Patti’s choice for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge —Β  Filling the Frame madeΒ me realise how much I do exactly that. I try to minimise distraction and guide viewers to see the my subject more clearly by presenting it front and (generally off-) centre.

Yet the ‘pink-wall’ image achieved exactly the same goal, focusing my attention not by foregrounding the flowers, but by filling the frame with “white space.”

Expect some attempts at this from me soon.

  1. They’re all fantastic, Su! Your photographic eye and your sense for composition are perfect to me – looking at your pictures and following your development as an artist is one my greatest pleasures since l joined WP. 😊 xxxxx
