Frame Blast

Picture 13

  • Every picture is characterized by a frame
  • This limits the story you want to tell

Here, it appears, how the frame is broken




  • It goes without saying that there will be more life in a picture if you change the perspective
  • Lines and depth have other dimensions if you take his photograph from new and unexpected angles

Picture 15

  • Taking the picture from below and up, it is called worn’s eye view.
  • The second way from up to down is called a bird's eye view

Third Second Rule

  • The thirdhelp’s rule means to compose the picture, if one divides his picture in thirds, you can move around in the subject areas so the picture is more vibrant

Picture 19




  • All images are subjective and consist of a choice as the photographer is making.
  • So nothing is right or wrong
  • But telling the story in its own way but if the viewer must "understand" the message, you may make you think about how you compose your picture
  • These guidelines should be a help to do this
