Landscape Photo Tip: Keep those horizons straight

Leave a comment

Today’s landscape photography tip is a basic one, but one that seems to constantly be in need of refreshing for many photographers when they hit the Canadian Rockies.  Don’t let your excitement make you forget the basics, so strive to keep your horizons straight on lake edges and shorelines, which you’ll find a lot of in Banff and Jasper.

Keep those horizons straight in your photos

You’ll also note that you can often get away from the rule of thirds here in the Rockies and even split photos exactly in half with a horizon (like the shoreline above), yet still get a great photo that really works.  So follow one rule (keeping horizons straight), but feel free to stray from another (the rule of thirds) on your next visit to Banff or Jasper.
Happy shooting!
