How to use perspectives to your advantage in landscape photography

We all heard about the topic of perspective in photography, we’ve all seen the pictures of people holding the sun or leaning against a building, these are the standard examples for perspective in photography.

That's not what I'm talking about, I’m talking about the subtle examples. So today I will give you 3 subtle tips on how to use perspective to your advantage.


1. Put your subject in perspective.

What does that even mean Kevin? Well it means to make sure that your perspective helps your subject to stand out. For example to choose your perspective in a way your subject appears in front of something light that way your subject is easily distinguishable from the background. Another example would be that you choose a specific place in your picture for your subject to be placed in and then put it in perspective to something else, that way you achieve a big difference in scale for example.

2. Use aerial perspective.

Drones are something really cool we have available nowadays, why not use it for your photography? Aerial perspective can make a landscape appear so much different, it really helps to get something much different from your everyday photography. In my opinion aerial photography highlights beautiful contrasts and patterns in landscapes.


3.

Low angle perspective

I personally love blurred grass or flowers in the foreground of my pictures, you can achieve that by choosing a low angle perspective in your pictures. In my opinion this helps to focus on your subject while not having any empty space in the bottom of your picture (which I hate).

It's important that you find your own style of photography so try to be creative with your perspectives. Make sure you have enough time while taking pictures that way you don't feel rushed. I personally struggle sometimes to find the perfect perspective for a picture because I feel rushed or don't have enough time. That's really sad because if i had planed enough time i could've figured out the perfect perspective for my shot. So if that’s the only thing you take away from todays BLOG “TAKE YOUR TIME” then I’m already happy because it means you will discover for yourself how to find the perfect perspective.
