Once you’ve settled on a location for your landscape photography, it is time to refine your search for the perfect composition. Professional landscape and nature photographer Ian Plant teaches you how to hone your scene selection, using foreground and background effectively to create compelling landscape compositions. Ian takes you through his process of selecting a composition, experimenting with different angles, creatively using natural light, and finalizing the photo.
