Week 1: Preparing Outdoors for Cold or Cooler Weather
Capturing the essence of cold or cooler weather in your photographs requires a keen eye for detail and the ability to convey the mood or atmosphere effectively. In this lesson, we will explore techniques to emphasize the feel and details in your photos while dealing with cold weather conditions.
One composition rule you can use to demonstrate preparing for winter with emphasis and details is “Framing.”
By employing framing in your composition, you can emphasize the preparations for winter and showcase intricate details effectively.
For example, you can frame your subject with elements like a cozy window with frost patterns, a doorway with hanging winter accessories, or an open closet filled with warm clothing and accessories.
Framing draws the viewer’s eye to the subject and its details, allowing for a more engaging and visually compelling representation of preparing for winter.
