    Walk around your subject

    Where to find the best photo opportunities

    Don’t just stand in one spot and zoom in until you’ve got your subject in the frame before taking your shot. Walk around your subject.

    This not only creates a different angle, but also, most importantly, changes the foreground and background for an improved composition.

    By removing any foreground you’ll make your subjects more prominent, but by adding more foreground interest your subject is no longer star of the show and will become just another part of your scene.

    Try different angles

    Both techniques work well, but try both, because one will generally work better than the other for a specific photograph.
