Basic tips for composing for photography with a foreground interest
Whatever your camera, you can always compose good landscape pictures by including some elements of foreground interest or leading elements. These can be just about anything - lines, curves, or a progression of shapes in front of the main subject. Leading lines in the foreground compel the viewer into the scene as well as add interest in the picture.

The foreground elements should be aesthetically pleasing. If, you are photographing people look for interesting objects in front to be put in the foreground. In the forest you can look for mossy boulders or flowery banks in the front of landscape compositions which should provide both depth and perspective to the scene. Also, use the wide-angle lenses to make composition effective.

If you have multiple elements to explore the scene from near-to-far and bottom-to-top visual progression, it will make the composition all the more effective such as waves, a stream or grass blades. This should be borne in mind that a good foreground merges smoothly with the rest of the scene.

So, while composing a picture with a foreground interest, survey the foreground for locating yourself. Secondly, set the camera for a depth and take a few shots with angles and tilts. If you have a digital camera, you experiment by changing locations, camera angle and tilts. With some practice, you will be able to compose well with foreground interest like a professional.
