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:

  1. Does everything in it belong in it?
  2. Can I remove anything? Anything at all?

Do that, and you get more professional photos.
