Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I'd like to talk to you about simplicity in photography. Now, simplicity in photography means exactly what it sounds like, just keeping it simple. Say you want to take a picture of a red rose inside of a bouquet of flowers. Now, rather than standing back and taking a picture of the rose and the bouquet and then the setting, just feel free to get in there and take a picture of the rose by itself, just real close. Now, another example of this is, say you're at a baseball game and you want to take a picture of your favorite player. Now, rather than taking a wide shot with the field and your favorite player and possibly some other players, feel free to put a longer lens on and zoom in and single out your player. This will leave no debate as to who the focus of the photo is. Now, keeping it simple, that is what simplicity in photography means. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
