Framing the Shot

Before you push the shutter, take a look at what you see through the viewfinder. See if there is anything in the shot that will distract from the subject. Try moving to one side or zooming for a different look.

A classic error in composition is the tree growing out of a subject's head (Figure 3.6). Before you push the shutter button, take a moment to study all of the elements in the frame. There may be subtle elements that will distract the eye from the subject or that will look positively silly. By moving the camera or subject slightly, you can eliminate the unwanted effect (Figure 3.7).
