Chapter 3. Compose a Good Photo > Choosing the Optimum Distance

Choosing the Optimum Distance

Since most digital cameras have a zoom feature, you can reframe shots with the push of a button. By zooming in, you can change the apparent distance between the subject and the camera. But if you're too close to the subject, you might not be able to get the background in focus (if that's what you want). Your best strategy in such a case is to step back from the subject and use the zoom (Figure 3.10).

Figure 3.10. The autofocus chose the bush in the foreground, leaving the background out of focus.
