Watch the background

THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENCES between professional and amateur photographers. One of the key failings of happy snappers is an inability to look at what’s going on in the background. You’ll often see holiday shots with a telegraph pole growing out of someone’s head, or a plane driving into their ear, or half a printed sign drawing the viewer’s attention to the wall behind them.

Taking an effective photograph means capturing the entire scene, not just a portrait of your subject.
