Learn by Doing Photography #47 – Foreground Interest
If you have ever read about photography/composition the word foreground has been said. Foreground is one of those composition terms I am always trying to remember. Sometimes I look back on images and one stands out amongst all the others. I sit back and wonder why do I like this particular picture over another one. Many times the reason is foreground, I will notice a leading line in one or the way I was lower to the ground adding to the foreground.
When photographing I always try to move around. Make sure to take a picture standing, but also go low to the ground. That way when you’re sitting at your computer all the imges won’t look exactly the same. Learn from yourself which one stands out, which one you like best.
Of course Andorama always has a good photography video, today it’s with Bryan Peterson. He is an excellent photography. I own his book “Understanding Exposure” which I have referred to many times, and would highly recommend. Here is a quick photography tip on adding foreground interest to a photograph, and what a difference it makes!
