SCRIPT A lot of amateurs make the mistake of placing their subject with the background. The problem is the subject is often too small to easily see. A better way is to plan your background and then have your subject move up. That way you can see the background and your subject is easier to see as well.
PRACTICE Take three pictures each time placing the same subject in a different part of the picture.
Place the subject with the background
Place the subject closer to the camera and in the middle of your shot
Place the subject closer to the camera but off to the side to see the background better
Study your results. Write in 25-75 words your observations in your Progress Report.
