How to Take Captivating Landscapes
Welcome back to Two Tip Tuesday! A blog post full of Photography Tips and Tricks for YOU. Hit the link on the left of the blog for more in this series. Share away and please leave some comment love for me below!
What is a landscape picture? Might you say….scenery…the outdoors…nature…might you even say it shows some space within God’s beauty and creation!
Choose your subject.
Is your subject the mountains? the beach? the fence? the barn? the sunset? or the sunrise? Before you can captivate with your image, you first have to decide what your subject is.
ok lets move on…
Tell as much of the story as possible.
Ask yourself what story are you trying to tell? the busy streets of Europe? the calm and serene lake with lifting fog? or the pasture in front of the mountains full of cows? I don’ know what story you are telling, but get as much of the story in a wide angle view as possible…WITHOUT distractions! Distractions being a random house that’s not a part of your story, a random car that may not compliment your image or even a power line running through the image!
Have a foreground to your landscape picture.
If you can place a foreground to your landscape picture it will be a much stronger image that will captivate your viewer and will intrigue them…they may even want to be at this place, it could give them a spark to travel and become adventurous! You will make your image stronger.

I have been enjoying these tips! While I have no aspirations to make a business of photography, I do want to learn how to take better pics of my kiddos and family. These tips have been helpful and have given me lots of insight into the art of photography itself, thanks!
