Simplicity - Declutter the background ,zoom in tight to eliminate background "distractions" ,or change your angle so your subject remains the focus of the image. The first thing you see is the lady bug. Yes it is the right thing. It stands out. You can easily be drawn to the Subject. No. everything is evenly exposed. Yes the main subject is focused. It is a sharp focus. The DOF is shallow. The DOF is perfect. The light is soft
Leading Lines- Use architectural lines - walls, fences, roads, or any lines to lead the eye through the photograph and draw attention toward the main subject. The first thing you see is the Model (Andres). The image stands out allowing the lines to draw you towards it. When you look towards the back ground the lines of the brick draw you back to the model. The picture is evenly exposed the DOF is deep and is usefully using everything in focus. The light is soft.
Spacing - Create a sense of movement by adding active space (the area your subject is facing) and eliminating dead space (the area behind your subject). In the image I created more space in front of the model to create ideas of movement. The first visible thing is the model. The image is evenly exposed. The DOF is deep but most of the space is sky that is white creating blank space. The light is soft :)
