Portraits on location can tell an in depth story by carefully incorporating elements of the background into the composition. Digitally created backgrounds, on the other hand, allow specially imagined situations and fantasies to showcase subjects, much like Renaissance painters did when they created elaborate sets for their heros to perform. Shakespeare inevitably influenced painters of his era, for example, Vermeer contrived his compositions like a carefully crafted stage, utilizing directional light and large foreground elements for a sense of perspective. With his design background, Frank has devised both realistic and abstract "sets" for his digital location creations.
