Less is more | Teach No. 1

I had the chance to contribute some of my photography principles to lilSugar, and I want to take some time to show you more examples of why I think these principles work for me and can work for you.

It's all about you and your subject.

Keep the background and foreground simple and free of distractions. Let the focus of your photo be on your subjects. Remove miscellaneous toys, laundry, snacks and groceries from the photo. Feel free to keep large-scale architectural elements such as lamps, accessories and artwork in the photo as long as they don’t render all the attention. Clean photos will give you a fresh modern feel.

Let the focus be on your children and your family.
