2. LANDSCAPE AND NATURE PHOTOGRAPHYBYTANISHA JAISWAL BJMC 2C 2012-15 3. Landscape photography is the supreme test of photographers and often the supreme disappointment. Ansel Adams 4. Landscape photography is intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic.Photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes, especially within contemporary photography.Landscape photographers often attempt to document the space as well as convey an appreciation of the scenery. 5. WIDE ANGLE LENS The use of wide angle lenses is very common in landscape photography.Wide angle lenses are mostly considered as lenses with a focal length of 24mm and wider for full frame DSLRs or 18mm and wider for crop-sensor DSLRs.Shooting with wide angle lenses has unique characteristics and great advantages which I will specify and explain in this article. 6. TIPS 7. Maximize your Depth of Field In nature photography, the normal approach is to ensure that as much of your scene is in focus as possible. The simplest way to do this is to choose a small Aperture setting (a large number) as the smaller your aperture the greater the depth of field in your shots. 8. Use a Tripod As a result of the longer shutter speed that you may need to select to compensate for a small aperture you will need to find a way of ensuring your camera is completely still during the exposure. 9. Look for a Focal Point Landscape photographs without a focal point will end up looking rather empty and will leave your viewers eye wondering through the image with nowhere to rest. 10. Think Foregrounds One element that can set apart your landscape shot is to think carefully about the foreground of your shots and by placing points of interest in them. When you do this you give those viewing the shot a way into the image as well as creating a sense of depth in your shot. 11. Consider the Sky Most landscapes will either have a dominant foreground or sky unless you have one or the other your shot can end up being fairly boring. 12. Work with the Weather A scene can change dramatically depending upon the weather at any given moment. As a result, choosing the right time to shoot is of real importance. 13. Work the Golden Hours Most nature photographers only shoot around dawn and dusk because thats when the light is best and they find that landscapes come alive. 14. PETER LIK 15. CLARK LITTLE
