1. FOREGROUND, MIDDLEGROUND, AND BACKGROUND
Treat urban landscape photography just like you would traditional landscape photography. You need to think about how a viewer’s eyes will flow through a scene, and the eyes often flow best when there is a clear foreground, middleground, and background. A landscape photographer will find an incredible background and then survey the area for a complementary foreground. Do this same thing in the city and don’t focus solely on the incredible architecture in the background. In the photo above, notice how the eyes start on the flower urn, are brought into the scene by the middleground of Bow Bridge and then end up in the background of the trees and building.
