Not get­ting close enough

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

As pho­to­jour­nal­ist Robert Capa fa­mously noted: “If your pho­to­graphs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” With this in mind, it’s easy to feel dis­heart­ened if you find your­self in a sit­u­a­tion where you’re lack­ing in fo­cal length. While it’s true that frame-fill­ing shots have im­pact, they’re not al­ways an op­tion. Crop­ping an im­age can get you that full-frame im­pact – al­beit at the ex­pense of im­age size – but why not try com­pos­ing shots so that your sub­ject is po­si­tioned within the en­vi­ron­ment, rather than iso­lated from it?
