Over the next few days and weeks I will be releasing a series of basic 101 photography tips that I think are worth while sharing, inspirational, and hopefully make for better Photography. I am always thrilled to get feedback and comments or suggestions. Hope you enjoy the photo tips and find them helpful!
Photo Tip #5 of 20: Leave distractions out of your compositions. If there is something in the view or background that are irrelevant to the main subject or that somehow do not support the subject, try to get rid of it by using a different perspective or weather phenomenon. In this picture of a willow tree at Jamaica Pond in Boston, the fog got rid of the distracting background of the urban shoreline. I waited years for this photo opportunity and you can imagine my excitement when it finally materialized and I was there to take a picture!
