When busy backgrounds can't be avoided

As you look for good settings for your photo, try to look for
elements that might merge with your subjects i.e. lamp posts,
trees, poles, etc. Be sure to frame the photo so that any odd
elements are to the right or left of the frame so that they
don't 'grow' out of anyone's head :)

When you can't avoid a busy background, set your
camera to blur the background. Use Portrait mode
or Aperature Priority mode with a low f-stop such as 4.0
to create a shallow depth of field, which keeps the subject
clear but blurs the background.
