What makes a landscape photo dynamic? In today’s visually laden media, you will find so many photos uploaded but there will be a few that catches your attention. Photos that “engages” you, or makes you look longer than usual. There are many visual cues that make these photos stand out. In my opinion these photos usually contains the following;
*Light and Color. The possession of inviting colors makes the viewer more attractive to it. Studies have been proven that colors play a part in a photo’s success in the social media and photo sites. Warm and vivid colors in my experience are almost magnets to more views and hits.
*Engaging Design. The use of lines and elements that employs a visual path. That makes the viewer see the entire image from point A to point B. Diagonal lines and curves are dynamic lines that provides displacement or movement.
*Elements of Motion or absence of it. The appearance an element moving or the absence of the movement creates intrigue to the viewer. It defies the common logic and makes the viewer look longer. You have to make sure that these elements are used together with an effective visual design.
These are the basic foundation that I believe makes the photo dynamic. There is no magic or mystery involved. No complicated mathematical configurations or degrees. Often most, being out there and practicing makes your chances of capturing dynamic landscapes better.
