Ive been doing a fair bit of bouldering lately so getting lots of photos but it seems its really hard to get a five star picture, When in the mountains normally the simpleist of pictures will make an amazing picture, but after looking through the bouldering pictures on here there arent many at 5 stars, just any tips or your thoughts on how I can improve when taking pictures of bouldering and what people look for.
Get the face in the picture, the back of a persons head just isnt that interesting... focusing on the eyes usually works well, but might require you to find a good (safe!) place up above the climber, or diagonally up so that you aren't risking dropping stuff on them.
An uncluttered background is good, so clear away bags/hats/jackets/sandwiches/random shoes that might sneak into the shot.
Then just take lots and lots until you get a cracker!
