    There are lines creating a square on the screen

    The reason to use this type of framing grid is to capture the center of an area or the most important part of an area. We don't want the most important parts to be too high up or too low down. This is a good framing tool for a portrait, for example.

    In the example, the image of a fish swimming sideways is in the center of the framing grid
    .
    The fish should not be too high up or too low down, as it cuts out of the framing grid. This helps to frame the point of interest. In this case, the fish is the point of interest and the framing grid helps to capture it in a centralized way.

    In the example, the fish is flipped upside-down
    .
    The framing grid can help centralize it and give the shot some balance.

    The school of fish in the example is captured in the middle of the framing grid, giving it a nice balance
    .
    It will capture the main point of interest and help the image achieve equilibrium.
