The term composition can be applied to all the elements of the shot explored in this section. The framing of the shot, the camera angle, colours, lighting, mise-en-scène, sound and movement are all elements in the composition.
While framing can be seen as a part of the overall composition, the two terms are often used together, ie ‘Framing and Composition’. It may be useful to think of framing as the selection of a certain area of space and the objects and people within it, and composition as the arrangement of the objects, people and space within the frame.
