landscape photo with Ken sklute

 

 

 

1. Bad weather often makes great photographs!

Living in Phoenix, Arizona I am sometimes longing for clouds to make the landscape look its best, as well as hold my viewer’s eye in the image. Storm clouds tend to add the most in terms of a textured sky, wicked sunsets, and even storms themselves. Cloud-to-ground lightning or a rainbow stretching across the sky can certainly make a compelling photograph when there might not be one normally.

 

 

2. follow the light

Directional light is paramount to my photographic vision. Light will drive your viewer’s eye and you are in the driver’s seat. By using light to develop your composition, there are vast ways to create depth and dimension in your images.

 

3. Story telling

Most successful landscape photos have multiple subjects that help tell a story. That story is interpreted by your viewer. The better the story, the longer the images stay in front of your viewer’s eyes.
