Landscape Photography Composition Rules

Landscape Photography Composition Rules

1. Rule of Thirdshttps://clcrowphotography.wordpress.com/2010/03/04/rule-of-thirds/

2. Framing an Image – add points of interest in foreground.  For example, this rocking chairs in this photograph are framed by the front of the house and the porch supports.  Another example is taking a photo of the Jefferson Memorial on the opposite side of the Tidal basin framed surrounded by cherry blossoms in the spring.

3.  Diagonal Lines – Using a diagonal line can be a very effective way to draw the eye to the main focal point.  Two converging lines coming to a single point can also be even more effective.  (I.e. Using a river or a road that leads up to a Mountain or bridge)

4. Geometric Shapes – The easiest example of this is if you have 3 different subjects.  Position them in such a way that they create a triangle.
