Composition - The Heart of the Photo

Composition is the spirit of the photo. Composition results in the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration starts when you free the spirit to experience the world around you and disconnect together with the domestic struggles of everyday life. Experiencing nature and actually being in the moment links you with all around you.

It might sound like meditation, but the mind is cleared by awareness of your surroundings without hindrance of external thoughts and sharpening your senses. Where you did not see them images appear. The components begin to art and align emerges.

Joseph Cornell in his novel 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into an area which you'd like to photograph. Rather than setting the camera up and shooting. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and sense the moment. Quite softly become conscious of nature. The Native Americans called this 'quiet hunting'. You personally will be spoken to by nature, but you have to be quiet. Nature speaks gently. Nature will reveal herself to you, in the event that 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 wanted to photograph. It could be that I was not ready or nature didn't need to reveal herself. Maybe she didn't feel photogenic that day. Scenes appear as if by magic. So do not be disappointed if you can't find anything to shoot on any given day. Utilize that time to scout the area for future chances and revel in the fact that you've got a chance to be outdoors.

Choose this as an opportunity to plan for future shots. At these times believe, what if the light was coming from a different way. A better image may be produced by coming back in the early morning or late afternoon. Seasons alter the landscape. Perhaps shooting together with the foliage in brilliant colours, in the autumn, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you want.

When seeking that image, do not hurry yourself. Time with nature is a joy all by its own self. The sheer happiness of being one with the outside is worth the experience in case you don't find anything to shoot.

On what's necessary to shoot at nighttime to assist anyone that's interested I've recorded a few hints below. I have been getting a little into nighttime landscape photography of late. Yesterday evening I had a lot of enjoyment with some fellow pictures playing with different coloured lights to produce effects that we can not record with normal human eyesight. Long exposures open-up a universe of imagination and possibilities. The image below was taken over the course of 2 minutes whilst my fellow photographer pal Ian Dixon slowly transferred his feet 360 degrees around a pivot point whilst spinning a coloured LED light. Whilst it sounds like an easy process in theory it is actually fairly catchy to form a perfect sphere as the distance in the swings has to be kept steady. Getting it right makes for an interesting effect and something to add further visual interest to a night time landscape photograph.

Night Landscape Photography Tips:

Please note you'll require a camera equipped with the flash mode

Look through the optical view finder - Live View is going to be worthless to you when composing an image. Better still try and arrive whilst it is still light to enable you to compose the scene and focus

Should you need to focus in the dark, use a torch to illuminate the focal point by illuminating the desired focus point and when you can't manually focus, set the lens to infinity and back it off by only a millimetre or two

Establish to Auto

With your camera set to Aperture Priority (AV) mode, set the aperture to f/8 and improve your camera's ISO to the maximum (i.e. 1600). Depress the shutter button and take note of what the determined shutter speed is

Now switch from the AV mode to the Flash mode - this is the sole mode which allows you to capture exposures greater than 30 seconds

Eventually, decrease the ISO to 100 and adjust the shutter speed to compensate. For example, decreasing the ISO from 1600 down to 100 signifies 4 stops (800, 400, 200, 100) where every time you halve the value it equals to one stop. This means that in the event the shutter speed was 30 seconds previously then it'd need to be fixed to rise by 4 stops which would be 480 secs (8 mins) (60, 120, 240, 480). It's important to maintain depth of field that you want and not the aperture as to change the shutter speed

Bonus Tip: Avoid turning on the camera's noise reduction as it'll result in taking longer for the image to write to the memory card (the same amount of time as required for the exposure) before becoming available for viewing on the LCD screen. Instead reduce any sound that could have been inserted into the image during the Post Production process
