Once you have generally scouted a landscape location, it is then time to refine your search for compelling landscape features that will make the best photo subjects. Professional landscape and nature photographer Ian Plant discusses how he explores by foot looking for the best subjects, in particular looking for compelling foreground features that can be used to lead the viewer’s eye deeper into the composition.
