4 Perspectives - Framing my shots

I'm largely looking for opinions on composition here. I've got 4 photos of the same subject, taken from different perspectives. I like each one for different reasons, but I'm curious what others think.

All shot with my Nikon D3300.

1. Ground Level, Framed with Curtains


2. From AV Both, Tag in Focus


3. From AV Booth, Out of Focus


4. From the Stage, no Curtains, just the Tag






Driving from Atlanta to Dallas 6/6 - 6/14, from Dallas to Chicago 6/14 - 6/20, from Chicago to Atlanta 6/20 - 6/29 with many stops in between. If you wanna meet up and shoot, drop me a line.

I personally prefer #2 because it's something different. The composition in #1 is by far the most common purely because it doesn't look bad and it's easy to get. I've never seen a stage from the perspective of 2 and 3 but I think with editing they could all be good.

Involving numbers 2 and 3, I would pic 2. I mentioned in another thread that the out-of-focus effect is ideal to highlight atmospheric detail, but I personally prefer to see the stage in greater clarity instead of the hole.

Involving number 1 and 4, I do like seeing the stage more.

I think in order to best utilize the content of numbers 1 and 4, I would shoot from a corner and lower to the ground to make the entire focus about the stage. I would then shoot the graffiti in a fashion as the way you did.

#1 but it's too close; wider lense or pan back.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

I'd say either 1 or 2. 3 is unique, but the box doesn't hold attention that well. 4 is interesting but the light is very uneven across the graffiti.


I think I'd go with 2 honestly. The box draws attention into the stage.

Personally I'd go with 2 or 3. All of them are decent, but I like the blue edging of the box. Pic 3 is almost too blurry for the more subtle background details, but not so bad as to be a throwaway. Good work all around though!

The best way to frame something simple like this is with either the Rule of thirds or right down the middle.

with the rule of thirds you'd want to basically draw a grid made up of two lines going up and two lines going across to split the image into 9 equal parts. Then you'd line up the bottom of the stage and the sides to fit right on these lines so the image is nicely balanced between dead space and visual noise.

with the right down the middle option you'd basically line up so the stage is directly in the middle. so you'd frame the width of the stage to be centered in the frame and same with the height.

Those are pretty tried and true methods of framing that have been around since the turn of the last century. All the greats have used it to great effect.




no god! please no! nooooooooooooo
