Photography Tip: Watch Your Horizon

The weather is heating up, so while you're wielding your camera on your upcoming vacations, this tip will come in handy — remember to "watch your horizons." What this means: if you're taking landscape photos (and especially pictures of the beach, or bodies of water), your horizon (the line that separates earth from sky) should be off-center — not jetting through the middle of your photograph — in order to give your image more character. Similar to the rule of thirds, your horizons would be best placed higher or lower than the middle of your frame. But as always — "rules" like these are meant to be broken, so be sure to experiment!

May is National Photography Month, and in honor of the occasion I'm serving up a different photography tip, trick, hack, or app every weekday in May, so please share your successful shots! Our Cool Capture group is not only a place to post your favorite pics, but you could also win a CanvasPop Print in our Cool Capture contest. Snap on!
