Whether you realize it or not, nature is full of natural shapes. Mountains are triangles, the sun and moon are circles, and rocks can be a variety of squares and rectangles. Shape photography, the ability to see shapes in an outdoor scene, is one of the ways photographers can improve their photography compositions. Once you see the various shapes in nature, you can creatively pair them together in an image. Photographing multiple shapes in one frame creates repetition and organization in your photos. In this video, David Johnston, professional outdoor photographer, will discuss how to do this using lines and rectangles.
