Tweaking the Composition
Previously, I shared excellent composition tips by Brett Michaud @Brett_Michaud_Photography. In this Wednesday’s Photography Tip, he shares tweaking composition in Landscape photography with us.
Tweaking Compositions in Landscape Photography
Avoid compositions that are too busy. This is common in forest scenes where trees, branches, leaves, dead foliage, dappled light, rocks, stumps and perhaps the odd forest critter are all vying for the viewer’s attention. Simple is often better.
Finally, have a plan: When on location, taking the shot, try to envision what you want the image to look like after you have finished the editing process. Having a plan for the final image forces you to make stylistic choices in the field that will allow you to achieve your goals. If you are shooting wildflowers and want a soft background with tons of beautiful bokeh, you better choose a wide-open aperture, or you will not be able to realize your plan.
As I said, following these guidelines will not automatically render beautiful images every time, but they will drastically increase the likelihood of you coming away with a picture with potential.
I will post more composition guides shortly. Stay Tuned! Feel free to contact us with your questions!
