|"INSIDE LOOKING OUT" ~ OXFORD, ENGLAND (July 2010)|
"Frame Within a Frame"
is Kat Sloma's current theme
for her "EXPLORING WITH A CAMERA" series.
In this participatory exercise, Kat posts a topic, theme or idea & asks you to use a camera to "explore your world" & share the photos on your blog or Flickr account! To get a better understanding of this compositional technique, you can read about it HERE!
|LEED'S CASTLE ~ ENGLAND (July 2010)|
My intention in taking this picture was to remember the shape of windows... but after reading her explanation, I found details in my photos I hadn't noticed... like the bird sitting on the outside edge of the window & the "knobby-looking" metal panels of the wall!
|ST MARTIN'S-in-the-FIELDS, London, England ~ July 2010|
JPE & I visited this church numerous times during our three-week stay in London last summer. The church pews were a refuge against a summer rainstorm; we listened to a CONCERT by the BELMONT ORCHESTRA; and more than once, SAT TO REST OUR FEET from the constant walking on our daily adventures.
Like a famous painting, we'll never forget the "magnetism" of this window... NOR the scrumptious scones & tea they sell in their basement cafe!!
|PARIS, FRANCE ~ July 2005|
Don't you want to take a peek in this courtyard? walk up the staircase? smell the fragrance of the flowers blooming in the window boxes? look at the architecture & detail of the ironwork up close? AND, LOOK, did you notice the lion's head in the triangle of the staircase? think it's a water fountain?
I discovered numerous examples of a "Frame Within A Frame" technique in my photo library. Take a peek at the second & third picture in my RECENT POST!
Have you used this technique? what mood or detail were you hoping to capture? what story would your "Frame Within A Frame" picture tell?
If you find you've used this technique, why not share the picture with others ~ stop by KAT'S and leave a link to your photo!
