Work­ing the sub­ject

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Once you have your cho­sen shot in the bag, it’s time to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent types of com­po­si­tion. Push in close and fill the frame with your sub­ject. If you’re shoot­ing some­thing like the acorns here, be aware of your nut and leaf – the shot needs to be clear to show your sub­ject prop­erly. Take it too far away and the photo will lack a clear sub­ject and may have too many dis­tract­ing el­e­ments in the back­ground; get too close and your sub­ject may not be recog­nis­able, as your lens may strug­gle to fo­cus, or you may crop out es­sen­tial fa­mil­iar el­e­ments. Un­less you’re go­ing for a very ab­stract im­age, it’s gen­er­ally best to avoid any dra­matic crop­ping.
