One of the trickiest parts of landscape photography is that unlike most other genres, you get no control over the arrangement of the elements in the scene, which can make composition a particularly tricky aspect. A common problem is an overly busy frame. What can you do to create simpler, more compelling photos? This excellent video tutorial will show you seven helpful tips to put you on the right track.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this great video tutorial will show you seven helpful tips for simplifying busy landscape photography frames. One of the simplest ways to do this is to simply zoom in. Most photographers default to using wide angle lenses for landscape work, and there is certainly nothing wrong with that, but when you are dealing with a particularly busy scene, it can create an overly complicated frame in which it is not clear what the viewer should be looking at. The next time you head out, consider bringing along something like a 70-200mm lens too. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
