I challenge you to continue last week’s exercise and place your subject in on of the four corners. By now you realized,if you have done this exercise, that a clear subject is essential. You also learned that the background has to help to bring out and point tot he subject. The more contrast there is between background and subject the more the subject can shine.
My wife discovered this owl sitting on a branch. There is hardly any color contrast in this image since the owl blends in perfectly. Ans still. the form of the owl is in total contrast to the branches of the trees.
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
