Hey there fellow storm lovers! Today weâ€™re excited to get our first photo tip type video out to you all, todayâ€™s subject is simply â€œFive Tips to Get Good Foregrounds for Storm Shotsâ€.
As with all of our tips (unless otherwise noted) these can be considered universal to photographers and videographers alike!
So what makes a good foreground?
A)Something that balances out and adds intrigue to a scene
B)Something that doesnâ€™t add unnecessary clutter
C)Something that makes the photo better (duh)
We put together this video to give you five tips on how to identify good foregrounds.

Generally speaking, you want to make sure that any foreground elements have at least a couple of these in common:
1)Thereâ€™s only one or two things.
2)It doesnâ€™t look cluttered/distracting
3)It adds to the scene in the sense that it gives a storm place or meaning.
Overall, remember that in framing shots you should take your time and use your feet (if you are able) to create a better overall scene. Donâ€™t just snap and go, give yourself a few extra seconds to think through what you are doing, youâ€™ll think yourself for it later.
