This is the big picture — where are we? For this shot, step back from the subject and put it in context. Think wide-angle.
Picture Two: The Relationship
This shot starts to get at what it’s like to be in the place you’re shooting by showing subjects interacting. Often, this means people connecting with one another — talking, involved in an activity together, or just looking at the same thing — but it doesn’t need to be. Inanimate items and scenery elements can interact, too.

The third image completes the scene by zeroing in on a detail, something you might not notice (or even be able to see) in the broader photos.
