    Landscapes Landscapes Presentation Transcript

    • Landscape Photographylacks a human element and is intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic.
    • “You don't take a photograph,
      you make it.” - Ansel Adams
    • Maximize your Depth of Field
      Ensure that as much of your scene is in focus as possible.
    • Look for a Focal Point
      Without one a landscape looks empty. Focal points can take many forms… building/structure, striking tree, boulder or rock formation, silhouette etc. Think about where you place it…. think rule of thirds.
    • Foregrounds
      Think carefully about the foreground of your shots and place points of interest in them… this gives viewers a way into the image as well as creating a sense of depth in your shot.
    • Consider the Sky
      If the sky is filled with drama and interesting cloud formations and colors – let it shine by placing the horizon low in your shot.
    • Lines
      One of the best ways to lead a viewers eye into a shot is to provide lines that lead them into an image. Lines give an image depth, scale and can be a point of interest by creating patterns in your shot.
    • Change your Point of View
      Take more time with your shots by finding a more interesting point of view. Find a different spot to shoot from… wander down or off paths, look for new angles, get down on ground or find a higher up vantage point.
    • Golden Hours
      Great shooting times are dawn and dusk – ‘golden’ light can create interesting patterns, dimensions, shadows and textures.
    • Reflections
      Landscapes reflected in water add a greater and more interesting dimension.
    • Get close…never forget this
      Detail and close-up landscape photos can be amazing and show the textures from nature we often overlook.
