More about simplifying to make pictures better. A recurrent theme here on speedlighter.
Consider this image, of Jane Dayus Hinch the other day:
It started like this:
I would argue that the above crop and the straightening (“disciplining”) of the verticals makes this a much better image.
Straightforward (forgive the pun) simplifying changes can have major effects. Every time you have an image, ask yourself:
- Does everything in it belong in it?
- Can I remove anything? Anything at all?
Do that, and you get more professional photos.
