The Power of Layers in Landscape Photography

Photo Logo Kit

A photograph is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional scene, and as such, part of the challenge posed to the photographer is recreating a sense of depth in the image. This is particularly important to holding your viewer’s attention in landscape photography, and one of the most effective ways to accomplish this is through the use of layers. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to leverage them to create more effective photos.

Coming to you from Photo Tom, this great video tutorial discusses the use of layers in landscape photography. Wide angle lenses are the most common tool of choice in landscape photography, but without a proper foreground element, they can render a frame that looks rather empty, with a two-dimensional background that looks almost like wallpaper. On the other hand, adding a foreground element (or a larger series of layers) brings back that sense of dimension and offers the viewer’s eye a natural entry point into the image that encourages them to explore the frame. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
