Be super mindful of what is growing out of the head of your subject

Here’s a good example of no matter how ‘easy’ you may thing it is to get some good shots, you MUST be mindful of things that will distract – ESPECIALLY things in the front or behind your subject.

Take this scene for example:

Problem #1 – light post growing out of trumpet player’s head

Problem #2 – people in front are distracting



Indeed, the close in shots on the player’s head gave a much more pleasing image…  Wish that white car weren’t there in the back.
