About the event

Submissions Date:  October 21st midnight

This Exploration focuses on the dynamic opportunities and critical importance of framing in photography.  There are two important aspects to framing – the image format (vertical, horizontal, square) and the use of framing techniques within the image to create dimension and/or direct the viewer’s attention.

There are four major different types of framing. The first is by using architectural elements such as buildings, building elements such as windows, archways, tunnels, etc. A second is using natural elements such as trees, flowers, canyon walls, stone formations to create a frame within the chosen format. A third is using geometric shapes, such as circles, squares, rectangles, ovals, and spirals etc. which may be natural or man-made. The fourth is by using light and/or shadow to create a frame for a situation or subject.

This an important opportunity to use your visual awareness when you take an image and experiment with various framing techniques to create a compelling image and draw in your viewer to your point of view.

Submit up to three images in either colour or black and white in .jpg format with your name first in the title. Please keep each file size to less than 5MB.
