Photo Techniques

Harriman State Park-When ever I shoot landscapes a foreground element is very important to me. Sometimes I spend more time looking at foregrounds than the actual composition. Having said that more times than not I think it adds so much more interest to the image. It provides a starting point for the viewer and it creates added visual interest. Foreground elements can be rocks, plant life or even water itself. Whatever you choose should relate to the rest of the scene. In this image I went into the stream and positioned the camera low and used the rocks as the compositional anchor in the foreground. Without the rocks, this image would not have the impact I was looking to create. ©Larry Zink
