One of the ways that I aim to create a more compelling photo is by incorporating natural layers to improve composition. This is especially useful with seascape photography because it’s easy for the viewer’s eyes get lost when you don’t provide sufficient foreground, middle ground, and/or background elements. Of course, this is wholly dependent on what you’re capturing and how you intend to present it. With these sea stacks, my goal was to allow the viewer’s eyes to roam from the front of the image thru to the back, bouncing from one rock to the other. I was fortunate to have these formations (taken in Bandon, OR) to use in my composition and did my best to establish enough separation of each stack.
