Making the Frame Fit the Subject

If you can find a frame that repeats the story told by the subject, it’s probably a good frame. Tomorrow – getting out of the frame via “trompe l’oeil”.

Nothing of the subject is lost by covering parts of it with this frame

We know exactly what’s under the frame; the same as we see through its window

This frame adds more to the scene than we would have without it
