Framing is how a photographer carefully presents a subject.
Unlike painters, who usually begin with a blank canvas, photographers
begin with everything in front of them. Once a subject is found,
a photographer decides what to include in the picture frame. The
photographer then composes the image to draw a viewer's attention
to the subject in a way that best expresses the artist’s
idea of it.
