Foreground, Middleground, Background


Add a sense of depth to your scenic and wildlife images
When you photograph scenics, and even wildlife images, it’s important to have a strong foreground, middleground and background to add a sense of depth to the image. For scenics, it’s imperative to have these layers. More so than when you make wildlife images, but if it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander.

The foreground element allows the viewer to enter the picture. The middleground adds a component that holds the viewer’s interest. The first two layers should lead the observer to the background element to complete the image. To have all three elements work in harmony helps improve the photograph.
