A Simple and Straightforward Technique for Better Landscape Photo Compositions

Composition can be a tricky thing when it comes to landscape photography, with many different ways to approach creating successful images. This great video tutorial will show you a simple and straightforward technique for improving your landscape image compositions. 

Coming to you from Henry Turner, this fantastic video tutorial will show you a simple and straightforward technique for better landscape photo compositions. Compositions are something a lot of us struggle with a bit, especially since they are not as easily codified as something like what shutter speed or aperture to choose. They can be particularly tricky in landscape work simply because unlike any genres, we do not get control over the elements in the frame. Personally, I have always tried to minimize things in the frame, only including the elements that absolutely add to the frame. One thing that can help with this is simply bringing a longer focal length along with a standard wide angle lens to help you isolate smaller bits of the scene. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Turner.

Your paranoia might be a result of smoking too much pot. Which is why I said getting all the help you can get is an understatement.

You're so funny. You would call a chicken racist and homophobic if it laid an egg on the wrong side of the road.

25 minutes of video with hardly 20 seconds of meaningful content in it

Well, gee, Greg. That's because this is called a photography vlog.

Greg, I'm glad someone was able to find those twenty seconds!

Bracketing and panning the stills without a tripod, but the vlogging camera is on a tripod... That said, the pano did look well stitched.
