The frame plays a dynamic role

Book Excerpt: “In traditional, shooting-to-the-final-composition photography, the frame plays a dynamic role, and arguably more so than in painting. The reason is that while a painting is built up from nothing, out of perception and imagination, the process of photography is one of selection from real scenes and events. Potential photographs exist in their entirety inside the frame every time the photographer raises the camera and looks through the viewfinder.”~Michael Freeman/Chapter: the Image Frame from his book The Photographers Eye

  2. And now we have Photoshop, etc. so we can arrange the composition further. i am trying to get back to doing as much as possible “in-camera.”

      If we can always do it right in-cam, then there’s no use for post-processing, but alas, for me its not often the case. Thanks Jane!
