How Camera Orientation Changes the Composition
The Composition is a broad topic to discuss. However, camera orientation is something that many photographers agree about its importance.
What is Camera Orientation?
There are two kinds of camera orientations, Vertical or Portrait, and Horizontal or Landscape. By simply rotating your camera and changing the direction, you can achieve different looks on the images.
We call the vertical orientation as “Portrait” not because it can only be used in portraitures, and the same for the landscape to use horizontal direction.
Using different camera orientations can change the overall composition. For instance, in the below pictures, you can see how a simple rotation of the camera changed the entire composition:
For the next photo, I rotated the camera and used the Portrait orientation. Clearly, the composition changed a lot, and the image looks totally different.
Here is a comparison of two orientations.
