The parched carcass of a tilapia is half buried in the dried bones and scales of millions of other tilapia that have died and washed ashore at the Salton Sea State Recreation Area over the last decade.

Photographer’s tip sheet: Get close

If you shoot with a wide-angle lens, you simply must get close to your subjects. If not, the spatial relationships between those subjects tend to be awkward and the dead space between you and them vast. Visual impact is all about filling the frame. So unless you can hear your subjects breathe, you might want to get closer. Words to remember: “Tight is right.”
