Landscape photographs are one of the most popular subject among photographers all over the world, but creating stunning images that will inspire viewers and bring up emotions is not always a walk in a park. It takes patience, experience, vision and a certain mood.
Some of our photographers share with you helpful tips that can improve your craft. Just keep practicing.
1. Quality Over Quantity
A lot of photographers just go out there and take as many photos as they possibly can, hoping to have captured at least two or three photos people will like. Instead of hoping for good photos, take some time to make plans and vision what you want to get, then, frame once or twice, push shutter release button and check if you like what you’ve captured.
2. Move Around
When you go out shooting sunsets and sunrises it’s scary to move from one spot to another. You might miss a beautiful shot that only time could bring. So what? So you’ll miss it. But what if you could get much better photos from 2-3 different perspectives? Wouldn’t that be even better? Don’t be scared. Dare!
3. Tripod! Tripod! Tripod!
If I could I would write the word Tripod all over this page. Technically I can. Hmm… Too many new photographers have top of the line cameras, expensive gear and a bunch of gadgets but flimsy tripods. Usually when you need to use a tripod it means you don’t want your camera to move even a single nanometer (yeah a little exaggerating here) so you have to have a stable tripod that will do the job. Wind, water, earthquakes… nothing should move your camera 😉
