When out photographing the landscape, I like to compose my images in both the horizontal and vertical formats. I took these photos while teaching the use of wide angle lenses on yesterday’s wildflower photography workshop. A few things are going on in these samples. One way to change viewpoint is by getting very low to emphasize the foreground flowers and to cut out too much empty space in the middle ground. Also, when using lenses like my 12-24mm it helps to get really low to the ground so the mountains can be included too.
Which do you prefer? Horizontal or Vertical?
