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.
