Helpful Composition Tips for Outdoor Photography

Head outside, and you will find photographic opportunities everywhere you look, both big and small. If you are struggling a bit with your compositions, check out this fantastic video tutorial that offers a wide range of helpful tips that are sure to improve your images of outdoor subjects.

Coming to you from Adam Gibbs, this excellent video tutorial discusses some helpful tips for outdoor photo compositions. Most of us think of wide angle landscape photography when we imagine outdoor photography, and, of course, it is an excellent subject that can yield plenty of photos. On the other hand, people often overlook the vast world of macro subjects available. And the beauty of macro photography is that there are subjects literally everywhere, so you do not need to travel anywhere far to find worthwhile images. Just be sure to toss your macro lens in your bag along with your wide angle the next time you head out, and keep an eye out for small subjects in addition to the bigger options. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Gibbs.
