In any sentence whether it is long or short try to find the action words then find the doer of the action.There can be no s-v pairs in prepositional phrases and every prepositional phrase ends only with a noun or noun phrase.

The subject of a sentence is the person, place, thing, or idea that is doing or being something. Ask the question, "Who or what 'verbs' or 'verbed'?" and the answer to that question is the subject.

You can slash and burn, i.e. remove the non-essential information; i.e. the modifiers.
