Frames Within Frames
The outer edge of a photograph acts as a frame to hold all of the photo’s visual elements. One way to add emphasis to your subject is through the use of internal frames. Internal frames are basically openings that allow us to frame our subjects; they’re backdrops that add depth and sense of perspective to an image. What I love most about a frame-within-a-frame composition is it provides the viewer with a strong sense of observation (Figure 4.18).
Figure 4.18 I used the arch of a nearby mosque to frame the Taj Mahal.
