Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media, and today I'm like to talk to you about framing a shot in photography. Now, because photography is such as subjective form of art, there are literally endless options you have when framing a shot. Now, one thing to keep in mind is what you're actually trying to accomplish with your shot. If you're taking a portrait of somebody, it's a good idea to capture their entire bust, leaving a little of head room so you capture all of their hair and everything else. If you're going to take a picture of like a vast landscape or something, you need to keep in mind what about about the landscape that you want to capture with the photo. Now, you look through the eyepiece and you're going to frame up you shot. Say, you want to capture a, a tall tree or something. Feel free to take your camera and turn it this way to get the entire tree rather than just a trunk. Now, these are just some simple things to keep in mind when framing a shot in photography, but again, opportunities are endless in framing the shot. I'm Dan Reinecke and that is how to frame a shot in photography. Keep on shooting.
