Take Better Scenic & Holiday Photos
Rotate the camera?
The next decision to make is which way around to rotate your camera, portrait or landscape. This is normally a fairly easy decision as it depends on the shape of your subject.
The majority of scenery photos will be in landscape. The eye sees in “landscape”, so a landscape photo gives a better sense of “being there”.
If you’re taking a close up photo of a tall building, a winding path or a majestic tree, then portrait may be more suitable. But if you want to show it in its surroundings landscape will be preferable.
If in doubt you can try both. It’s good to experiment to discover what works to give a better photo. Taking lots of photos isn’t a bad thing, as long as you think about each one.
