Seeing Double

or…“What to do with those animals that won’t stay out of your frame in the background!”

Many people like photographing their wildlife subjects against clean backgrounds with minimal distractions. There are even some that lambaste the presence of other out-of-focus animals in the frame as being “distracting”.  Given, they CAN be distracting if they are not adding to the overall story and context and composition, especially if they are not easily discernible or criss-crossing behind your subject in certain ways.

To read a short photographic essay I wrote about this concept - with many more images, check out THIS POST on the Wild Eye Photo Chat blog.

Keep well, until I write to you again!
