While we are taking so much care to ensure our subject looks great and is composed well, it is easy to forget what is going on in the background. We have all taken photographs with lampposts and trees growing out of people’s heads. Part of composition is ensuring that everything in an image is in the right place and that there is nothing distracting from the main subject. It is important to observe the background of your image, what is going on, whether there are any distractions are anything in the background that draws the eye away.
