Finding Compositions in Nature

In Landscape Photography, making an object or part of the scene, the focal point, is essential. These tips help you to create a focal point.

 

  1. Find a main subject and make it the focal point. All great images have some component that will draw the viewer in and keep them there. But remember, the main subject can be something other than a physical object like a boat, lake, or tree. It can also be more abstract like a pattern or arrangement of interesting colours.
  2. Attend to all phases of the image: Once you have a main subject, see if there is some way to incorporate elements into the foreground, mid-ground and background to enhance the overall image. An image with a nice background can be beautiful, but adding exciting foreground and mid-ground elements will really enhance the overall interest of the image. Compare an image of a sunset with another image of the same sunset with wildflowers in the foreground and a lake reflecting the sunset in the mid-ground. Suddenly you have an image with a much greater interest factor.
