Eliminating Distractions in Travel Shoot

Have you ever come across a wonderful scene, taken a photo, and felt that your shot didn’t capture the essence of being there? It doesn’t mean that you’ve picked a bad location. Something made you stop to look. As photographers, your job is to work until you find a photo that captures the essence of that scene. Either you may have too much in the photo causing distraction. It’s too busy, there’s something disturbing in the scene, or people are seen walking around. Start looking for things to eliminate.

There are a number of ways to remove distracting elements and get to the core of your subject. Change your angle. Get tighter on your subject to fill the frame. Change your depth of field to blur distracting backgrounds. Photographers don’t just click one image and walk away with a masterpiece. Think about what made that scene interesting, was it a shape, color contrast, the way the light falls on your subject? Concentrate on the core element that makes you appreciate your subject and then get rid of the stuff you don’t need.
