Composition is probably the most important element in making a memorable landscape photograph. In this video, professional outdoor photographer, Steve Kossack, takes you into an Arizona desert cavern and demonstrates the basics of good composition when photographing an abstract.

Steve shows you that even in shooting an abstract image, it is wise to obey the laws of composition, what he calls the Anchored Abstract. He frames an area of swirling, textured lines on the sandstone canyon wall and records an amazing abstract composition.

Climb down into the cavern with pro shooter, Steve Kossack, for landscape photography tips on capturing an anchored abstract image through careful composition.
