This fantastic video discusses one of the most difficult composition problems in landscape photography and how you can address it to create better, more compelling images.

Coming to you from Mark Denney, this excellent video deals with a common problem in landscape photography composition. Composition is a tricky thing in landscape photography, particularly since unlike a lot of other genres, you do not get to move any of the elements in the frame; you can only move yourself to change your perspective. One thing I think that gets overlooked quite a bit is exploring the usage of longer focal lengths. A lot of successful composition is a question of exclusion, and forgoing the standard wide angle look can be quite beneficial in a lot of cases and can often help you create much more unique photos than we are used to seeing. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
