Improve your Composition with Foreground Interest

Improve your Composition with Foreground Interest - I took an early drive out to Little Beach in Two Peoples Bay near Albany for some sunrise landscape photography.

At first light, I could see that there was heavy cloud cover and I wasn't going to get a much of a sunrise as a result.

That didn't deter me, I enjoyed coming out to Little Beach and there was another cove, Waterfall Beach, to the west that I wanted to explore.

When I reached Waterfall Beach, I could see it was reasonably small, so found a location where there rocks and swirling water in the foreground. I tried capturing the entire beach in the image but it didn't quite work.

I walked across to the other side and found a group of rocks to would make an interesting mid-ground to the image.

In front of the rocks, I discovered some gorgeous patterns the water had made in the sand, so I positioned the Fujifilm GFX50R low to the ground and so the patterns were in the foreground of the image.

I emphasise the patterns I added a circular polariser to the GF 23mm lens and turned the polariser so effect it has on the sand was to increase the detail in the pattern.

This video demonstrates how an interesting foreground can enhance your composition and improve your landscape photography image as a result.
