Shannon has challenged us to take a Landscape photo using the vertical, or portrait, orientation rather than the traditional horizontal, or landscape, mode. I had to search through a number of photos in my files to find an entry for this challenge and along the way I came up with a few observations about what works well in this non-traditional composition.
1. Fill the foreground
By using the lower one or two thirds of the frame you can draw attention to a distant subject.
2. Accentuate a vertical subject
Use the portrait format to focus attention on tall subjects.
3. Frame your subject to create interest
Shoot through a doorway, arch or window to isolate a point of view.
How do you use the Portrait mode to take traditional Landscape subjects?
