For professional outdoor photographer David Johnston, creating a photograph that has a clear idea of the subject was a challenge when he was starting in outdoor photography. However, his mentors told him that it was the one way to create a good photo. There are many ways you can seclude your subjects in the outdoor scene. In this video, David will show how to use subject seclusion for clean photography by using wide apertures with a wildflower he found in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. After watching this video you’ll have a better understanding of what to do to get clean photography the next time you’re faced with a cluttered composition.
