GREAT LANDSCAPE SUBJECT? MAKE IT THE BACKGROUND, NOT THE WHOLE PHOTO

August 2020

Think of almost any popular landscape subject. When we see a new location for the first time, we are keen to get a photo – any photo. And often that is just simple photo of the subject. If it’s a truly iconic subject (think Uluru, the Glasshouse Mountains etc.) it will probably produce a decent image. But what about creating a unique image – something that is yours and your alone?

After taking the easy and obvious photo, it’s time to put your creative mind to work. Look around for an interesting subject in the foreground, and find a way to compose something more dynamic. Your main subject doesn’t have to be the entire photo – it is often better to make it the background to a more interesting image.

Having found a great foreground to really bring your image to life, consider using your wide angle lens and get very close to the foreground object. This creates an exaggerated perspective where the foreground fills the frame and the background is pushed further into the distance. The result can be an eye-popping image that has other photographers saying “I wish I though of that!”
