Normally, I would crop the bottom of this type of image or Photoshop out the distracting object but here’s a rare glimpse into how I take control of the subject when creating a photo. There was a slight breeze this day and when I was trying to get the shot of this flower it kept swaying. Well, that was just unacceptable so I showed her who was boss by getting a firm grip on her. This technique doesn’t work quite as well with people and would likely land me in jail. So, I recommend you use this technique only in appropriate situations.
Update: Shirley mentioned it would be nice to see the cropped/Photoshopped version of this flower so I have added the second image.
