SUB­JECT SEP­A­RA­TION

Where there is more than one com­po­si­tional el­e­ment, don’t leave too much space be­tween them as this can com­pli­cate use in pub­li­ca­tions. For in­sects, shoot in burst mode to cap­ture mul­ti­ple po­si­tions

CRIT­I­CAL SHARP­NESS

At high mag­ni­fi­ca­tions any blur­ring is in­stantly vis­i­ble. For com­mer­cial use, lack of sharp­ness, ei­ther creative or un­in­ten­tional, is best avoided to in­crease file use­ful­ness

NOT TOO CLOSE

While frame-fill­ing im­ages can be eye-catch­ing, oc­cu­py­ing

the en­tire frame with the sub­ject may not be the most dy­namic op­tion. Try show­ing more of the habi­tat for a

deeper nar­ra­tive

AC­TIVE AT­MOS­PHERE

Al­ways at­tempt to cap­ture the sub­ject ac­tively en­gaged in a dis­play of be­haviour. This adds in­ter­est to the image by con­vey­ing an in­ti­mate per­spec­tive of the

sub­ject’s life­style
