Use Plain Backgrounds

Plain backgrounds will help you to keep it simple. Try to avoid noisy backgrounds as they distract viewers from the main subject. The background of your image should be simple and clean.

  • Isolate the main subject of your picture from any distractions on the background.
  • To make your composition stronger keep it simple. Don’t include too many unrelated elements in your image.

Bonus tips

  • Images with one main subject usually have the strongest impact.
  • If you only have 1 subject in your image, photograph it closer to make it prominent (unless you are trying some of the creative techniques such as negative space). Images with the subject filling the frame keep the viewer’s focus on that subject. Moreover, don’t be afraid to crop.
