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.
