How to Isolates your subjects?

It always looks amazing when you draw attention to a single element of the image and isolate the subject nicely.

You can use the isolating technique in different creative ways. Here are a few pointers on how to get started “on creating an isolated look”.

  • Look for subjects which have distance between them and the background
  • Use the lowest F-number available on your lens
  • Lights in the background give a nice background bokeh (blur)
  • Steady the camera or use high shutterspeeds

If you’re unsure on depth of field check out my explanation here (I use my collection of cars as subjects).

Here are a few photos to show you what it would look like if you truly crack the look.
