Weekend's Wary Ways: Simplicity

June 08, 2012

The more I think about it, the more I realize that photography has no rules because photography is freestyle and you can 
do anything you want with it. It's really hard to think of tips every week, but I try my best to give helpful advice for you guys.
Anyways, today is going to be about Simplicity. Self-explanatory, let's get straight to the point.
If you want your photo to look simple but interesting, look around you and when you find a subject, focus on it. Leave 
the background blurred and simple, and make sure it doesn't blend with your subject otherwise the attention won't go to it.
Hello there, Billie :)
The less subjects there are, the more simple it will come out.
When taking a picture of something with lots of complicated lines or textures, make sure there is something that brakes
that pattern. Like this streetlamp on the pole, your attention diverts to it instead of the wires.
A very simple composition, focusing not on the raindrops but on the back seats. (Composition is also very important)
Leaving only one line of clear raindrops on the window, the rest is blurred therefore no distractions.
 Last but not the least, subjects don't have to be that fascinating or extraordinary. Regular objects in daily life that you encounter
 can become a simple beauty. Enjoy your weekends, everyone!
