Landscape Photography Composition: Let's bake a cake!
Ingredient 1: Leading Lines
In simple terms, a leading line draws the viewer into the Image. It creates depth and allows the eye to be drawn through the shot to a possible focal point which could be a subject, a burst of light or simply to infinity.
Ingredient 2: Light
Ingredient 3: Lines and Shapes
Lines and shapes help create definition and symmetry in an image. They are pleasing to the human eye even if we do not realise it! This overlaps a bit with leading lines however you can use different parts of the landscape to create shape and give the shot structure. Different shapes can often help create layers and separation in a shot
Ingredient 4: Breaking the image into thirds
Last but not least: Rules are there to be broken!
