Framing (visual arts)
Framing can make an image more aesthetically pleasing and keep the viewer's focus on the framed object(s). It can also be used as a repoussoir, to direct attention back into the scene. It can add depth to an image, and can add interest to the picture when the frame is thematically related to the object being framed.
The frame of an image is determined by many factors, including:
- Depth of field - the range of focus within the image
- White space - the empty space surrounding the subject
- Color and lighting
Framing often refers to the placement of the subject in relation to other objects in the image.
