The image you are photographing is already framed inside the confines of the viewfinder, but placing your subject within another frame can be a good way to draw the viewer’s eyes toward the part of the image you’d like to emphasize (Figure 8.21). You can also give the image a feeling of depth and help tell a story by being creative with the depth of field (Figure 8.22).
