It's friday ladies...

First I wanted to point out that I learned how to add music to my blog today, go me!!!
Ok, Friday photography tip of the day time!!
When taking pictures don't forget the curtains, Curtains you ask??
YES, just like we put curtains on our windows to center a window, and draw your eye in, photography can be the very same way!!
When looking into or on your view finder be mindful of what is framing your picture. In a perfect world it is always nice to have your picture framed, so it draws your eyes into the subject...
weither it be trees, with branches that gentlly fall to the side, or literal frames, like door ways and things like that. When trying to add framing to your pics be mindful of two things, that you get the whole "frame" into the pic and as 'Allison Orthner' would say
"watch out for blue speedos!"
What is a blue speedo you ask??? Well that is best answered by her, however the short version would be...
A blue speedo is anything in the background or foreground of your photo that you don't want in it or just wasn't invited!! Like the man walking along the beach in his blue speedo while you are trying to take a great sunset photo!!
Notice how I have "framed" these two pics...
