If you are anything like me, you have probably experienced the feeling of sitting in front of your computer, agonizing over which shot from a series of similar images you should select to edit. So, what is it that every good landscape photo should have? This informative video tutorial discusses three things that most (if not all) landscape photos have.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this great video tutorial discusses three characteristics that worthwhile landscape images have: an interesting subject, compelling composition, and good light. There are a lot of things that go into a landscape image, both on the technical side of things and in voicing your own creativity. One thing that helped me quite a bit was learning to simplify my compositions when I felt stuck. A lot of us struggle with landscape scenes simply because they often contain so much information, and it can be hard to compose the images in a way that is not too busy and that clearly emphasizes the subject. If you are struggling with creating an image, try zooming in a bit to simplify the composition and focus on including just two or three compelling elements. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
