    посередине = в середине
    I don't see any significant difference.

    Я посередине/в середине фотографии = I'm in the middle of the photo
    Я в центре фотографии = I'm in the center of the photo
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    The most prevalent is 3rd variant. Also you may use 2nd one, but 1st one is hard to my ear. You may use it but it sounds somehow weird. Посередине can be used in посередине пути but as for photograph it's better to use в центре.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    "Я в центре фотографии" is the best. Other variants are weird.

    Agree.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
