How to Improve Your Landscape Photo Compositions

Composition is one of the most challenging aspects of landscape photography, and a good composition can be what takes an interesting subject and creates a compelling photo of it. If you have been struggling with creating good compositions, this great video tutorial will show you an effective method for finding worthwhile subjects and using them to make better photos. 

Coming to you from First Man Photography, this excellent video tutorial discusses how to find good landscape photo subjects and create better compositions. One thing that can certainly help you a bit is to get away from using wide angle lenses temporarily. That is not to say there is anything wrong with them, but they capture so much of the frame that it can be difficult to arrange it in a compelling manner. Using a longer focal length can help you to zero in on purer shapes and forms, and as an added bonus, you get some unique photos that are quite a bit different from the norm. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
