This week I had a lot of fun playing with filling the frame. I shot in my yard and tried to play with interesting backgrounds as well as filling the frame with a single subject.
One concept in depth of field is that of filling the frame with an artistic intention is to draw full attention to our subject. Filling the frame edge to edge with our subject(s) by moving closer, zooming in, or cropping the image in post-processing eliminates background distractions and forces the viewer to examine the subject in close detail. In a portrait, filling the frame with the subject—particularly close-ups of the face—can capture personality or mood that would get lost at more of a distance. Non-human subjects also benefit from this close inspection of all or part of the object. Filling the frame is often used in macro photography to isolate important details.
