From the negative space, the use of depth of field to the art of cropping – there are many ways to remove extraneous clutter from your frame. Sometimes we do it in the form of visualization before pressing the shutter then at other times we do it afterwards, cropping it when we are unable to go close enough to fill the frame. We do all these simply because the world is just too magnificent to fit conveniently into any format of photography. We have to be creative while presenting the frame aesthetically. Presenting only what is essential is the most powerful concept of photography, because it is what gives you a unique moment that only belongs to you.
