Remember, Backgrounds can be used to help fill the frame of your photo. You can also use backgrounds to your advantage by making them part of the story you are trying to tell in your photograph.
You can’t usually leave out the background completely, but you can control it to make a strong composition.
Notice in each of the following images below how the backgrounds have been used effectively and notice how they compliment the main subject. Achieve a brilliant result simply by using an aperture such as F2.8, F3.5, F5.6. Give this a try to produce stunning results for your next photograph.
