Photo Tip #1

Get Closer!

Most people stand too far away from their subject. Unless the scenery is part of the story, be brave and get in there close. There is more impact of your subject and less distraction from a cluttered background. Try cropping into the top of the head or through a hat for more attention on to the face.
