There should be even space around the left and right sides of the subject. You should also leave a little “head room” on top so you don’t cut off the subjects head if they move. This helps balance your shot.<br />WRONG: too much negative space, Pan over, Tilt up<br />RIGHT: nice medium close up head/shoulders<br />Leave room at the lower third<br />of the frame to insert title<br />Nice close up, with good centering <br />and still room to insert title<br />
  25. 25. Composing a Single or “Talking Head” Shot<br />The subject can also be to one side of the frame to include or highlight background<br /> For interviews the subject is also set to one side of the frame with plenty of “nose room”<br />
