Description

Foreground is an easy way to add another dimension to a composition - depth.

Have you ever taken a disappointing picture of a breath taking view? If you have it's because a photo is one dimensional - flat. Where as reality has layers of depth to it.

In part 1 we'll take that boring photo and in foreground part 2 show you how to improve it with foreground.

If you can add a sense of depth and place to your photography composition you'll transform an otherwise dull photo into something memorable.

You'll be amazed how easy it is to find and use foreground in your compositions. However you have to put a bit of work into it yourself.

Once you find some foreground to use you have to move yourself and your camera into the right place to utilise it. In the case of this image I had to lay on a wet gravel path to put the cobweb in the foreground of the image. Comparing the two images I think it was well worth it.
