Finding A Skilled Appearance In Your Landscape Pictures For Wheatland Indiana

Composition - The Core of the Photo

Composition is the spirit of the photo. Composition contributes to the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration starts when you disconnect with the internal battles of everyday life and free the spirit to have the world around you. Truly being in the moment and experiencing nature links you with all around you.

It may sound like meditation, but the mind is cleared by awareness of your surroundings without hindrance of outside ideas and sharpening your senses. Where you didn't see them before pictures appear. The elements begin to align and art appears.

Joseph Cornell in his book 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into an area that you would like to photograph. Rather than setting the camera up and shooting. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and feel the second. Really quietly become conscious of nature. The Native Americans called this 'silent hunting'. You personally will be spoken to by nature, but you must be quiet. Nature talks gently. Nature will reveal herself to you in case you are patient. And unbelievable pictures will appear.

There are lots of times that I've entered the woods with camera in hand and not found anything that I needed to photograph. It may be that I was not ready or nature didn't want to show herself. That day perhaps she did not feel photogenic. Other days, scenes appear as if by magic. If you can not find anything to shoot on any given day, so don't be disappointed. Utilize that time to scout the place for future opportunities and revel in the truth that you have an opportunity to be outside.

Choose this as a chance to plan for future shots. At these times think, what if the light was coming from another way. A better image may be produced by coming back in the early morning or late afternoon. The landscape changes. Maybe shooting in the autumn, with the leaf in brilliant colors, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you would like.

When seeking that image, do not run yourself. Time with nature is a joy all by its self. The absolute joy of being one with the outside is worth the experience if you don't find anything to shoot.

Composition - Ten Ideas And Techniques for Amazing Results

Composition does not come naturally to many photographers. The technical aspects could be learned but some say that composition may not. Although I do not believe this to be totally true, photography is an art form and does require some natural ability.

So what can I do, my composition blows? Composition is subjective so there will always be someone out there who enjoys you work regardless of how poor you may believe that it's. Most non-photographers are not that discerning but to capture genuinely wonderful photos composition is essential. A nicely composed photograph only functions, it is fairly clear-cut but it is more a feeling than conforming to a group of rules.

Here are a few composition tips to remember next time you go out to shoot. Keep them at hand and see if they work for you.

1. A painter selects what to include in a painting, a photographer must choose what to exclude. Mess compositions removing unnecessary components by selective framing. Use your legs, walk about seeking alternative compositions and utilize the cameras zoom to control what exclude and more importantly, you wish to include.

2. The 'rule of thirds' is a compositional practice that is well-known but does not necessarily need to be strictly adhered to. The rule dictates the principal components that make up the image should fall on or near imaginary vertical or flat thirds.

3. Check your horizon. For me the horizon should only ever be absolutely flat. Make use of the very top of the window in the view finder as a benchmark. I often point the camera downward to align the horizon before re-composing.

4. Do not leave large empty spaces. Leaving big holes in the composition for example uninteresting expanses of water or dark or very bright components should be prevented. By shortening the tripod legs to compress big gaps in the mid to near foreground shift view. Conversely components should not be cluttered, raise the height of the camera to boost the distance between components.

5. Take a walk before settling on three or two compositions to shoot. Take the time to refine them instead of shooting anything and everything.

6. Make the foreground and background interesting.

7. Use leading lines such as movement or rock formations in water to lead the eye into the framework.

8. Check the edges of the frame for absolutely any distracting elements (half a tree, breaks in clouds etc.), and recompose if necessary. Be sure you are able to concentrate the audience's focus to the topic and try not to distract them away from it unnecessarily. Ask yourself, 'what is this image about?'

9. Try and keep compositions balanced to some amount where potential. Building or a protruding headland can upset the equilibrium, eliminate it and try to find an alternative composition.

10. Practice, critically reviewing your own work and looking at how other photographers compose their photographs. Check out this landscape photographer for a beginning.

Most importantly, get out there and love, exploration of composition is a continuous learning curve.
