Inside the Frame: Mount Whitney

What’s the best way to show the height of a summit than the reading from a GPS device?

A GPS device leaning on a hiking backpack place prominently on the foreground at one of the most important positions on the photo undoubtedly says we just hiked a really high summit.

A group of hikers sitting by the edge of the summit on the upper half of rule-of-third guide lines provides a balance to the composition and context for the photo.

Inside the Frame series dissects how a photo incorporates composition patterns. Every photo is annotated to clearly reveal each photo composition technique used when framing the scene. Studying these photos will help you take better pictures yourself.
