From sky to earth


Article Excerpt: “Determining the ratio of sky to earth is a key concern in composing dynamic photos. Regardless of whether it’s a sweeping landscape or seascape, or a more intimate scene, the amount of sky you choose to include in the composition can make a huge impact on your photo…Too often, though, photographers automatically split landscape or seascape images into equal halves, with the horizon line or maybe a distant shoreline extending right across the middle of the frame. The viewer, then, is left to decide which half of the scene is most important. But that’s for you – the photographer – to decide when composing your image!”~Kerry Drager from his article Dynamic Photo Composition: How Much Sky – How Little
