In this first amateur tip, keep your photos simple. Reduce the visual clutter in your photo’s foreground or background. Try to keep it to a minimum; it will detract from the subject of the photo. If you notice there is too much in your frame, try taking the photo from a different angle.
In the above photos you can see the first photo has too much visual clutter in the foreground. See in the second photo how I just angled the camera over the crowds heads and it makes for a more professional looking photograph.
