Sometime, u may saw some amazing postcard or wallpaper with great landscape photograph, and u tried to use your own digital camera to capture it while u travelling in that particular place, at the end u can't get it what you want. so u start blaming ur own digital camera equipment or disappointment
Well, there are several rules or references which guide you to capture what u want, no matter you are using DSLR or compact cameras. Believe what you have
These are the way of composing :
1) The rule of thirds
Place your object to the left or right of the frame and not at the center. This is a very useful element to position your subject into your frame.
2) Horizontal line
Let your frame have 2/3 of the clouds or ground, either way ask yourself which u want to emphasize, give your shots more depth and interest Also look for interesting clouds to compose together with ur subject, not blanket clouds but scattered clouds.
Look for interesting lines to frame ur photography, u never knew how these lines will amaze your photography ^^
Photography is everything. These rules not meant to be followed, is just a guide for you to have quality photo. RULE ARE MEANT to BE BROKE. If u break these rule with producing good photograph, you meet more than the eye ^^
