4. Focus the viewer’s eye.
Blurring the background (or foreground) is a critical skill for a photographer to master. Called “selective focus,” this blurring allows you to focus the viewer’s eye directly on the subject. You can achieve this effect by shooting with a longer lens at the widest possible f/stop possible, as this reduces the depth of field to an extremely shallow margin.
5. Change your perspective.
Changing your perspective is great way to change your composition, especially if you move really low or high. We don’t often experience these vantage points, so your photo will have a fresh look. You might need to lie down in the dirt or climb up a tree, but getting a great shot will make the inconvenience worth it.
