Natural Framing In Landscape Photography

Use framing to direct the viewer’s attention to a specific location within the composition.

Natural framing is a popular technique in landscape photography where the photographer deliberately places the primary subject in a position where accompanying elements surround it, highlight it or call attention to it. A connection between the objects framing the subject and the subject itself should exist. The goal of the frame is to direct the viewer’s attention to a specific location within the composition. It unifies the primary focal point with natural or man-made objects that surround it. These objects add a sense of depth and also help identify the environment in which the image was created.

Dennis Rickard – Emerging Talent

It was 11 years ago that Dennis Rickard’s journey in photography first began. Travelling frequently with work – Rickard has worked in the telecommunications industry for the past 34 years – he thought it would be fantastic to capture some of the amazing sights he was taking in. This interest lay mainly with landscape photography, and Rickard was fascinated with both the natural world and the man-made. While he has an affinity for black and white imagery, Rickard also captures striking images in colour.
