King Lear Composition

The two eyes of a king

Two eyes of a King Lear statue

There are a number of different ways to create interest with editorial photography. In this series of images of King Lear,  I’ve chosen to fill the frame. Filling the frame creates a lot of interest and allows me the opportunity to dissect the subject.

Also, filling the frame will enhance one point of interest. In the case of the King Lear statue that occupied Pioneer Court near the Tribune building in Chicago, IL. was to focus on the eyes. This photo captures J. Seward Johnson Jr.’s detail, and Photoshop takes care of the rest.

The next time you have a chance to go out with your camera, try filling the frame to eliminate background distractions.
