Likewise, people ask, what is a viewfinder in art?

A viewfinder is a simple device that allows you to isolate or “crop” a scene within a rectangular area. Some viewfinders divide the area of the rectangle into thirds. You can place major masses along those lines. They create pleasing visual divisions and will help you immeasurably in drawing accurately.


One may also ask, what is camera viewfinder?

In photography, a viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and, in many cases, to focus the picture. Most viewfinders are separate, and suffer parallax, while the single-lens reflex camera lets the viewfinder use the main optical system.
