When looking for a good spot to shoot photos (for your blog or of others if you are a photographer), one really good tip I’ve picked up along the way is where to place the background. Your subject will pop out much more if they are further away from the backdrop so long as it’s not a distracting background. This will leave your subject the main point of focus and everything else will be slightly a little more out of focus.
As you can see with the above photo, the floral is nice but a tad distracting. The background is also really close to me so it’s very much still in focus. Not that this is a bad photo but the first photo is much more interesting.
Get outside and play around with it this weekend (and don’t forget to send us a link if you post photos with this technique)!
