When taking pictures, we usually pay close attention to our subject. This, of course, is a wise thing to do when using your camera, but it’s also very important (and sometimes even more important) to pay attention to the background or backdrop behind your subject (Figure 8.3). The background can make or break your photograph. You should be careful of anything behind your subjects that could appear to be sticking out of their heads (trees are a common culprit) or of busy backgrounds that could compete with whatever or whoever you are photographing.
