Taking photos of Landscapes is such a cool activity that connects you to the nature and helps you forget negative thoughts. If your photography is good, then your viewers will benefit in the same ways. Here are a few thoughts on what landscape photography is, and how to develop your landscape photography skills.
Pictorial depth is a third dimension in a 2 dimensional image. Being able to communicate depth in a landscape photograph will increase the sense of space and using pictorial depth cues is a composition skill.
After learning the importance of lines in Telephoto Landscape photography, something obvious occurred to me. From those lines come proportions.
When I play back through my shots I see how I am working on a frame getting slightly closer to the correct composition. It can be useful to study your work like this sometimes. What seems clear is that there can be different rules of composition depending on your focal length.
The rules of composition are guidelines for producing a well designed image. ‘Guidelines’ are probably a better description than ‘rules’ as they just help us as a kind of starting point. Breaking the rules of composition often means simply observing a different rule.
