In this week's video, Ibarionex discussed the importance of paying attention to the small details, especially juxtapositions between the subject and the background. The process of slowing down when practicing photography provides an opportunity to observe the small details that often make or break a photograph. Using images submitted by TCF listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool, we get to explore the detail that can make all the difference.
Each week we pull images submitted by listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool. You can submit images for consideration in these weekly videos as well as become part of a growing community of photographers.
