Sometimes, we photographers, seek to isolate our subjects as best we can so that the focus is purely on them, and not on their surroundings, especially if the background is busy. There are numerous ways to do so, which I am sure you will see in today's blog circle, but I will focus on three that I use.
The first you saw some of last week. While doing some photography work at an event, I sought to isolate some of the subjects from the surroundings. Here are a few more photos.
In the first I blurred the background. So, you can isolate by blurring everything but the subject.
In the second I cropped most of the background away. Cropping is a technique I will use to isolate a subject as well.
The third technique is to simply find a "lone" subject to begin with. Driving home from this event I happened to find a sheep who was "outstanding" in her field <--(very old joke, and now I have really dated myself!).
To see additional methods and how other photographers isolate what is in front of their lens, why not take a few and read through the blog circle. Start with Susannah Maynard of Pet Love Photography, serving Greater Cincinnati, the San Francisco Bay Area, and destinations nationwide.
Have a great weekend. Don't isolate yourself. Winter is coming. At least for us. Enjoy!
