Landscape photography is unique in that you can't move the elements of your frame to adjust the composition, and as such, it can be easy to fall into the trap of making your photos too busy without even realizing it. This excellent video tutorial will show you five signs that your landscape photos may be too busy.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this great video tutorial will show you five signs to look for that indicate your landscape images may be overly busy. In landscape work, we tend to default to wide angle lenses, and as such, there can often be a lot in the frame. Of course, there is no inherent obligation to use a wide angle lens, and in fact, using a telephoto lens can be a great choice for multiple reasons. First, it automatically simplifies your composition by excluding more of the scene. More interestingly, though, because we are so used to landscape photos being shot with wide angle lenses, using a telephoto gives you a chance to create a more unique look that'll catch your viewer's eye. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
