SCRIPT Once you have your frame, once you have your background, double check for details.
Is there anything in the way that can wreck your picture? Do you see anything in the way that can wreck our picture? How about a green tarp covered with disgusting paint? Your choice here is to move the tarp out of the way or change the angle.
Since you’ve chosen this background, I suggest you move things out of the way. If its people, be very discrete. If they can move OK. Otherwise, consider waiting or if they look nasty chose another angle. In this case, I don’t think the tarp is going to give us a big problem.

There, that wasn’t so difficult. Now we can take a better picture. I’m ready for my closeup.
PRACTICE Take two pictures of yourself.
In one picture place something distracting in the background, for example, a white rag or paper cup, for example.
Remove the distraction and take the picture again.
Study your results. Write in 25-75 words your observations in your Progress Report.
