If you put the subject on the side frame, you are revealing a dimension like the surroundings of the subject.

Fill-up the Whole Frame
Frames are used to focus the eye of the viewer on the subject. However, there are alternatives like forget the frame and just fill the whole picture with the subject.
This is very useful when you are taking photos of food or flowers or anything that takes the whole space of the frame. It is, however, important to crop to avoid empty spaces especially around the edge.

Additionally, taking groupfies or selfies can be restrictive because of your hands. So why not take control and just snap photos by syncing Bluetooth remote camera to make things life easier?
