Given the fact that you have no control over the placement of the elements of a scene, composition can be a uniquely tricky aspect of landscape photography. And while there are some tried and true methods like the rule of thirds, sometimes, you want to push your compositions a bit further. This excellent video tutorial will show you the power of diagonals in the frame and how you can harness them to create more compelling landscape images.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this great video tutorial will show you the power of diagonals for landscape photo compositions. I think exploring concepts like these is really crucial to growing as a photographer. There is nothing wrong with the rule of thirds; in fact, it is a fantastic heuristic for creating effectively balanced photos, but if it is all you rely on, your portfolio might end up looking a bit monotonous and you will probably end up feeling a bit unsatisfied creatively. Branching out can lead to stronger images and make the experience more enjoyable. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
