Some important tips that will improve your landscape photography.
Generally I'm not a huge fan of lists. My wife loves them but I'm more of a "just in time" kinda guy. On the internet lists abound. Yet they are often obvious, superficial and difficult to put into practice. I'm a little loathe to create a "list" blog post however I wanted to start this site by sharing some foundational material that will hopefully prove useful whilst leaving a deeper exploration of the topics to another time.
With a subject as big as "improving landscape photography", where do you start? Choosing 10 feels like a good way to make this managable both to write and to read. When thinking of the things that I have found most useful in my progression as a landscape photographer these are the things that kept coming to the top of my list. I hope they prove useful to you also.
- Shoot at the right Time of Day.
- Use a Tripod.
- Use Filters.
- Appropriate Focal Length.
- Improved Focusing technique.
- Thinking about Composition.
- Including Water & Sky.
- Doing your Research.
- Post-processing your images.
- Conveying Emotion & Reaction.
Some of the 10 you may already be doing which is great! I think by adopting and being mindful of these in the field we are certain to create better images.
Are these 10 things helpful to you? Is there something you think is missing? What would your 10 look like? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
