Photo Friday: What the heck is that?

Guest Post from Ann

I took a photo last weekend that reminded me how important it is to think about what's going on in the background when you're shooting. Because the soles of my husband's shoes growing out of my daughter's head like black rubber elephant ears just look kinda crazy.
Yeah, there's not a ton you can do besides try to move in a situation where you're aiming to capture a fleeting moment with somebody on the go. And then you have be sure to remember to be still again after you've moved to avoid blurriness. In any case, it's good to be conscious of what's around your subject. If you're posing a photo, remember to get rid of all the background clutter and distractions that you can. When you're not able to tell what something is in a photo, it can be incredibly distracting. And you want people to be saying how cute your baby is, rather than, "What the heck is that?"
