This month’s photography tip is based on my recent mistake during a photo session - I didn’t check the background! I captured these great moments of a mother and son, however while I was taking their picture I realized there was a lamp sticking out of the mother’s head! Good thing I caught it, so I was able to change angles so the lamp was no longer in the image. Here is one of the pictures I captured with the lamp:
Thank goodness for photoshop, because I sure loved this moment. I was able to erased the lamp. Here is the finished image:
Removing the lamp really made this photo so much better. It allows the viewer to focus on the mother and not that thing sticking out of her head. :)
Here is an example of changing my location and angle so the lamp is not a distraction:
