Problem picture #5

Look closely to see what's very wrong


You will have to look closely to see what is embarrassingly wrong with this picture, made to promote a delicious "Today's Entree" food product. The photographer was having a bad day, and made a fundamental mistake in setting this scene up, and once you notice it, you will probably laugh.

In order to elevate the "Today's Entree" package, the photographer placed film cartons beneath it (shown by the arrow), which is perfectly fine, however they should have been concealed before the picture was taken. (The client, by the way, did not receive this image. As the shutter was tripped, the photographer noticed the film cartons, said a bad word and corrected the problem.)

This type of error is not that uncommon. When you are deeply concentrating on one aspect of a composition, it can be easy to miss what should be the most obvious of problems. It is a good idea to step back and take a moment to look at the overall scene before you trip the shutter and call it a day. Double-check images taken with your digital camera in the viewfinder afterwards. You may be surprised to notice your own version of the "film-carton-in-the-picture" problem. The good thing is that you will be able to correct it and take another picture.
