Photos by Alex Lindsay
Sometimes, composing a photo is just as much about other areas of the photo as it is the subject. If you look at these images, you will see the use of the “other elements” to compose the picture. The first, Carrletta is behind Kie…it frames the photo and puts them together. In the Second, I shot Kie through his play gym. The out of focus foreground plays a key part of the composition. I often find myself looking for opportunities to use the background and foreground in the image as much as paying attention to the subject. Developing the muscle to look for the whole image is key to talking great pictures of the subject.
