The most important fac­tor that sep­a­rates the amateur pho­tog­ra­pher from the professional pho­tog­ra­pher is the background.

Amatuers just pho­to­graph the main sub­ject (Boy, Girl, Group of People,  etc.), make sure that their subject is in focus and forget completely about the back­ground. This is a stupendous mistake. The back­ground makes the photograph stand out.

2. Move Your Subject if there is a distracting background.
3. If you can’t move your subject then change your camera angle.
4. Use Aperture to blur the background to avoid distractions.
5. Place subjects at a long distance from the background to create a better depth of field.
6. Fill the frame with the subject. (Eliminate the background altogether.)
