  • Landscape Photography
  • Landscape Photography

    • Foregrounds give the viewer something to look at right away while providing depth to the photo
  • Consider The Sky

    • If it is dramatic include it on lower 1/3.
    • Filters, Filters, Filters!
  • Lines
    • When used in foreground it gives the viewer a path to follow in the photo
