One of the best ways to know how to take good photos is to know what makes for a terrible photo. This hilarious video will show you how to take terrible landscape photos so you know what makes for a good landscape photo.
Coming to you from Craig Roberts of e6 vlogs, this fun video talks about how to take a terrible landscape photo. If you've not seen Roberts' videos before, he has a wonderfully quirky style that's very engaging. Of his tips, the one I most often see violated (and am still guilty of myself quite a bit) is not paying attention to having a compelling foreground. It's easy to come upon a beautiful landscape scene, throw on a wide angle to capture all of it, and come away with an underwhelming picture, particularly since the wide angle lens tends to push the background away. Having a foreground element brings back some interest to what's otherwise a very flat scene and helps to draw the viewer's eye through the image. Even though a photograph is two-dimensional, try to think of how you can show the element of depth in your images. Check out the video above for more helpful tips.
