TIP OF THE WEEK

Use Simple Backgrounds

The simple approach is usually the best approach. Before pressing the shutter release button, you have to decide what needs to be in the photograph, while not including anything that is distracting. If possible, choose a plain background something with neutral colors and simple patterns. You want the eye to be drawn to the focal point of the image rather than a patch of color or an odd building in the background. This is vital in an image where the model is placed off center.
