Landscape Photography

Landscape Photography

Do you tend to take even more pictures in the summertime? Do you take a lot of landscape shots? If so, you might as well add some spice to them by choosing alternate perspectives and compositions. Don’t you agree? Then let’s take a look at our options!

The first example below shows a typical landscape photo:

How boring! To add some pizzazz to your landscape photos, here are five things you can do:

1.) Get Down – So many good landscape shots miss the chance of being great, simply because you lift the camera to your face and shoot. That may capture some inspiring scenery, but it’s exactly the kind of shot we’re all used to. By getting low to the ground, you can improve your results and make your photos stand out.

2.) Tilt Forward – You can enhance the impact of your immediate location by tilting your camera forward and focusing on what’s immediately in front of you. The rest of the landscape can make up the background.

3.) Shoot Through – Shooting from just inside a treeline or through a patch of tall grass or flowers will heighten the sense of actually being in the landscape.

4.) Seek Contrast – Include strong elements of light and shadow to achieve a more stunning effect.

5.) Frame – Look for opportunities to frame your landscape photos in dramatic ways, such as breaks in the foliage or open portals like glassless windows and open doors.

Following these five rules will give you some of the best landscape photos you’ve ever taken. Happy shooting!
