In this Skylum original video, venture to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with professional nature photographer Ian Plant, where he will share all his secrets and tricks to using shapes creatively in your photographs. What happens when the lava cools and hardens, he asks. It forms a twisted and bizarre landscape. Spirals, curves, and lines — these shapes are the building blocks of creative compositions and compelling landscape shots. Spirals create a radiating pattern. Curves are gentle and encourage the viewer the meander. Spirals lines lead the viewer’s eye. With all of shapes, think in the abstract and you will attract the viewer’s attention.
