Five Tips To Get Started In Landscape Photography
Landscape photography is perhaps one of the most popular and most abused themes in the world. I think anyone of us is in front of a sunset or a spectacular view, immediately imagine to immortalize them in a “souvenir photo” after editing with a mac editor. Often, however, when we go to see it again, we are faced with something that does not convey the idea of what we felt at that moment. Here are some basic rules that we hope will be helpful in the next few occasions when you will find yourself in front of a splendid view.
Objectives To Be Used
To give a better idea of a landscape and enclose as many elements as possible in our photo, it is essential to use wide-angle lenses, that is, with a focal length below 35mm, If you are using a compactor, in any case, a fixed lens camera, set the zoom at a minimum by acting on the ring nut or the “W” (comprehensive) key.
The Best Moments
Try to take your photos towards sunset or, for the early risers, even at dawn. The photographs were taken during the central hours of the day produce images in which it is difficult to grasp the details due to the sharp contrast between the light and dark areas. Furthermore, with the sun high in the sky, the shadows will be very short, almost invisible, and this will tend to flatten the photo. At sunset, however, the light is subtler, the colours are much warmer, and the subjects will be more effective.
Always Use The Stand
Sharpness is paramount. So, since in these cases we will almost certainly have to deal with static subjects, it is essential always to use a tripod or somehow lock our camera. Never rely solely on the stabilizer.
