How to Use Leading Lines for Landscape Photography Compositions

A strong grasp of composition is one of the cornerstones of successful landscape photography and one of the most powerful ways to create stronger images. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to leverage leading lines to create compelling landscape compositions. 

Coming to you from fototripper, this great video tutorial will show you how to use leading lines to create stronger landscape image compositions. The difficulty of composition in landscape photography is twofold: first, you do not get to control the elements in the photo or their placement, only your position relative to them. Second, scenes are often quite busy, with multiple nuanced layers, and it is important to create a composition that carefully arranges the elements in a logical and easily digestible format, especially if your frame is particularly busy. Leading lines can be a powerful and straightforward way to draw your viewers' eyes across the image and toward the primary subject. When you are looking for a good composition, take the time to find elements that create potentially strong pathways toward your subject. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
