Ever heard of the saying: “Less is more” ?
This is especially true in digital photography. Usually, the strength of your composition depends more on the things you take away than the things you include in your photo.
So when you are shooting your photo, think hard about your main subject and the story it tells.
Then think about how do the individual items in your viewfinder contribute to that story, and do not be afraid to remove everything that does not absolutely deserve to be in the frame.
The point is, that by removing unnecessary clutter, you ensure that:
- The subject of the photo is clearly defined
- All other elements detracting from your main subject are out of the way
- Less elements in the frame allow you to create a stronger composition with the ones that matter
So our tip of the week is:
Keep things simple in your photos
