Distracting backgrounds can be as simple as a palm tree or a power pole behind someone’s head, but with moving pictures it can also be something moving in the background so we need to keep an eye out for anything catching our eye in the camera. Anything in the background that is catching our eye can also be distracting for the viewer so it is important to be aware of this problem. Sometimes we can fix it by moving a little bit to the left or right and framing it out. We can also move a bit further back and tighten the shot to lose the distraction or throw it a little bit out of focus. By shooting with a bit longer lens we have a shallower depth of field.
