Using zoom in to fill the frame for better composition in photography
In photography, the way one shoots a scene or subject is crucial to make the most of ordinary of situations. There are some basic photo composition rules to make photographs stand out compositionally.
However, many times it requires a more open-minded approach, what works for one photo won't necessarily work for another as scenes vary from place to place and it is the visual knowledge and skills that too count.

If the distance is too much, and photo looks cluttered since when you look at scene directly to look at the subject and shoot directly the camera captures every thing in front also to make the picture messy.

You need to try the 'fill the frame technique' by zooming in the camera. But the point to be considered is that how much you should zoom in by. First, zoom in to fill the frame and then slightly zoom out to get one of two nearby things in parts or completely to set the context.

Or else, first filling the frame by zooming in, walk a few steps backward from the subject to get a few things into the frame. It has been seen that getting away from the subject in question gives better results at times. Better use a tripod or firm rest for zoom in compositional photography of still subjects.

If full zoom in includes many things, try the vertical frame. Keep experimenting; you will learn more from experience for better zoom in compositional photography.
