Landscape Photography

Composition

 

The composition of a landscape photograph is very important. 
A very good rule in photography is the Rule of Thirds. That means that you will get a better photo if you don’t place the subject in the middle of the photo.

At the left photo, the subject is in the middle of the photo. At the photo on the right the subject is more at the left of the picture, the composition is much better.

The rule of thirds is a “rule of thumb” or guideline which applies to the process of composing visual images such as designs, films, paintings, and photographs.[1]The guideline proposes that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.[2] Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply centering the subject.
