  Framing

Framing is organizing the picture contents, focusing on the relevant. Some useful mnemonics to framing:

  • Dynamics of the picture - so-called one-third rule - cf. "golden section"
  • Diagonals - composition in depth, mastering the perspective
  • Pay attention to the borders of the picture. For example a part of the picture in a camera viewfinder is left out in television -> a 10 % marginal around the framing
  • The size of a person is understood with the help of the air space (cf. Tom Cruise - Sigourney Weaver).
