7 Composition Tips That Will Skyrocket Your Landscape Photography

Posted on

Look for Leading Lines

Using leading lines is another “old faithful” of photographic composition in landscape photography with rivers, roads, tracks and fences all playing prominent roles in helping a photographer “draw the eye” of their audience into a shot.

Finding these elements and then positioning yourself in a way that allows you to use them well in your landscape is easier said than done on a lot of occasions though. Most of the time you will have to walk (often quite a distance) to get those elements in the position you want them in your frame.

You will also usually want the leading lines to actually lead somewhere specific like the center of interest. This serves to get your audience to look towards that spot on the image.

Notice how the image above uses the track (leading line) to draw the eye towards the mountains (center of interest) in the distance.
