12 Days of Photo Tips - Day 5

Our 12 Days of Photo Tips are brought to you by our very own Robin Gibbons.

Fill the frame

A lot of photos are thrown to the side after developing because the subject is too small. Unless the background plays and important part of the story get close. Shots that fill the frame tend to me more dynamic and enjoyable too look at. Up close details can be fascinating and important to the story. Say you have a cute toddler strapped to their highchair eating a sugar cookie tree. The frosting on her face and in her ears tell the story. If you take a photo five feet away from her you won’t be able to see the mess. By walking closer to her and getting a shot of her face and the cookie you have a told a complete story that makes scrap booking easier.
