Framed Subject
When the camera is positioned so that the subject, usually a person, is framed by something in the background such as a window or a doorway.

This has a psychological effect on the viewer, and is intended to provoke a sympathetic response.

Can be used anywhere but watch for it in news interviews and commercials.

This may be part of a larger trope, using blocking and camera position to influence the viewer. See:
