Before you watch the video, I want point out just a few things that can be a distracting element in a photo. White/light tones, heck any sort of brightness commands our attention, we are drawn to them like a bug is to a bright light. Cluttered backgrounds, and poorly composed images can all be a distraction. Also be aware of objects that are directly behind your subjects head, think face in a clean space. Lastly, bright colors are a huge distraction, and just happen to be the focus in today’s video tutorial.
Disclaimer: This is just one way to handle distracting objects.
