Moments That Matter: lesson 3: topic 1: eliminate distractions

I thought I was more aware of this issue, and I was for major distractions but many photos I took had to be eliminated due to smaller distractions.
even image 3 submitted here has slight distractions on the left, I thought the ones on the right added to the story.

  1. Yes this definitely takes practice. It’s still one of the things I most struggle with. But as long as you can recognise between what adds to the story and what distracts the eye away from your subjects, you’re half way there. Keep practicing and make sure you build a habit of checking the viewfinder before you click the shutter and you’ll find you get better and better. Keep up the good work and keep capturing those precious memories.

  2. Thanks, and actually I need to get faster at moving around to angle the camera to be able to eliminate the distractions
