"So many photographers forget the space between model and camera..."

As my professor said: " Photographers often forget the space between camera and model but it is  exactly this space that can make your picture more interesting when it's used the right way."

First, you focus on the subject you want to photograph: the model, dog, apple.. whatever it is. Next, you observe the background: Is there a disturbing tree in the back or does the colour of the wall match the dress of the model? There are photographers who spend so much time thinking about the perfect background - how they can achieve the perfect look, ...- that they forget the last step:
Check out your foreground!
Is there a flower I could put in front of the dog? Even though the flower might appear blurry, this detail can give your photo a whole new look. Try it!
In the picture I show you here, I used a glass plate which is normally used by artists to mix their colours. I was really lucky I found it (the colours matched the whole setting and clothing perfectly ). I took a lot of photos till I found the perfect angle to create this photo.
Search your environment for cool stuff to use in your pictures, it will definitly be worth it.
