The first step in focusing your vision on smaller aspects of the landscape is by excluding horizons. Including the horizon in a photo immediately defines it as a vista, as it suggests open space, and all sense of intimacy is lost. Once the horizon is gone, so is that sense of space. Instead you’re concentrating on the view. That’s the great thing about shooting the landscape on a smaller scale. One minute you can be capturing an area of many square metres; the next on your hands and knees composing a detail a few centimetres in size.
