Shooting model Johanna in various yoga poses, I inadvertently framed her in this shot with her foot extending beyond the white background. If I wanted to use this shot (luckily I had many others to choose from) I would have needed to clone in the background around her foot. Not the biggest Photoshop project but, a bit of a PITA. I could easily have solved the problem by stepping a tad to my right as I shot.

This was a really amateur mistake. The moral of this is, always look at your background, don't fixate on the subject. No matter how attractive that subject may be:dash2: Luckily her smile was just as bright in many other images...
Uhmmm the subject and her posing are very distracting! I will definitely make a mistake :D

Top tip for the unintended abstract photographer: silent shutter is your friend.

This requires a little story.
I recently visited the Cranbrook Institute. It's an artsy fartsy school/gardens/museum type place. Pretty nice for a photography visit, and it's free.
There were these four cherub statues in the garden there, and I thought...hey, it'd be cool to stack these in photoshop.

I wanted to focus on the goose but there was too much brush in-between us to make it look good.
