Wonderful Creative Use of a Frame in the Composition

The use of a frame, in a photographic composition, is powerful and generally easy to spot. A well placed frame can direct your viewers eyes right to the subject of your image.

Above Stockholm

Usually shooting aerial imagery with his feet planted on the ground, Tobias Hägg (Airpixels) traded in his drone for a helicopter ride over Stockholm to get a change of perspective. Capturing the cityscape of the Swedish capital during golden hour with the X1D II 50C without testing it out much beforehand, Tobias aimed to see just what the medium format camera could do in the air. Shooting on both the XCD 30 and XCD 90 lenses, Tobias’ imagery takes us on a journey from above, between Swedish homes and golden-topped trees neatly woven together in combination with wide expanses of the city stretching all the way to the horizon.

Vietnam from above

A bird’s-eye view highlights the diverse landscapes of this Southeast Asian country.
Vietnam stretches over a thousand miles from north to south and measures only 31 miles wide at the narrowest point. Long and skinny, this J-shaped Southeast Asian country holds three distinct climate zones to lure travelers. Tea plantations stripe the mountains of the northern provinces near the border with China, beaches edge the South China Sea to the east, and in the south, the Mekong Delta creates a maze of rivers, swamps, and islands, dotted by floating markets and rice paddies just waiting to be explored.

Green tea islands dot an irrigation lake near Vietnam’s border with Laos.

Photographers often spend a lot of time thinking about the light. But, what about the shadows. Using shadows, in a composition, can create some pretty amazing, and creative images. These shots are some superb examples.
