How to Find the Right Composition for a Landscape Photo

In between specialized equipment, camera settings, forecasting, creative vision, and more, it takes a lot to learn how to create compelling landscape photos. But perhaps nothing is trickier to learn than the art of composition. If that is something you struggle with a bit, check out this great video tutorial that features a range of helpful advice from an experienced landscape photographer. 

Coming to you from Serge Ramelli Photography, this helpful video tutorial will show you some great advice for creating compelling landscape photo compositions. Composition is something beginner and experienced landscape photographers alike struggle with. It is difficult in any genre, but particularly so in landscape photography simply because you have no control or the physical placement of the elements of the frame. That is why so many experienced shooters advocate for spending a lot of time at a location and not rushing the shots, as this will allow you to get past the obvious, surface-level shots and find something more nuanced and eye-catching. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ramelli.
