Editing is an important step in creating the final look of your image. If you’re a landscape photographer, Mark Denney has a useful video for you. In this video, he guides you through six essential skills and tools that you need to know to step up your editing game.
Landscape photography isn’t only about wide-angle lenses as we’ve seen before. You can use a wide range of lenses for landscape shots, from ultra-wide to really long, even over 200mm. But which one to pick? Nigel Danson has the answers you need. In this video, he’ll help you choose the ideal lens for different scenes and compositions.
While most landscapes seem to be photographed with pretty wide lenses and is often the key selling point of wide and ultrawide lenses, they don’t have to be. You can shoot landscapes with just about any lens, and they can be particularly interesting when you use a long telephoto.
But shooting landscapes with telephoto lenses isn’t always straightforward. It’s easy to mess things up and ruin your composition. One particularly common mistake is what Mark Denney calls “scene stuffing”, and in this video, he explains what it is and how to avoid it.
There are plenty of reasons to use telephoto lenses in landscape photography. However, it doesn’t come without some difficulties, and you’re bound to make some mistakes. In this video, Mark Denney addresses the four most common mistakes people make when using telephoto lenses for landscape photography. You may be guilty of them as well, so check out the video and Mark’s tips for improving your photography.
No matter what genre of photography you shoot, there are images you have in your head that you want to create as examples of “great” photographs. And if you manage to pull them off, then fantastic. You share them far and wide. But what about the pretty good, not terrible, above average, but not great photographs? Should you share those?
That’s the question put forth by landscape photographer Ralph Goldsmith in this video. When it comes to his own answer, it’s a resounding yes, absolutely, share away, and he gives three of his reasons why.
Photography “mistakes” videos seem to be quite popular these days, but that’s for good reason. Many of us keep making them, and for most of us, we really should learn not to.
In this video, landscape photographer Nigel Danson talks through his top seven landscape photography mistakes that he sees people making all the time. He also discusses how easily these mistakes can be fixed so that you don’t keep making them.
Ansel Adams is, without a doubt, one of the greatest and most influential American landscape photographers. In his latest video, Martin Kaninsky looks at not only Ansel’s work, but his life and what influenced his work to become as recognizable and influential as it was. If you’re a fan of this great photographer’s work, I’m sure you’ll love this video and the presentation.
Are your lenses not quite wide enough to get that landscape shot you want? Or perhaps your camera’s resolution isn’t quite high enough to print it as big as you want to? Well, that’s where stitched panoramas come into play. The process is fairly straightforward and offers a lot of advantages over just using a wide lens, but there are a few gotchas.
In this video, landscape photographer Nigel Danson walks us through his process of making stitched panoramas covering everything from the different shooting techniques to how to actually stitch them together in the computer.
The study of natural history reveals that palaeolithic humans steadily evolved over millions of years as hunter-gatherers, grouped in small, tribal societies. They refined harmonious relationships with their environment, gathering plants, fishing, and hunting wild animals. Anatomically, modern humans are much the same as our ancient ancestors. Our bodies remain designed to move with endurance, speed, strength, and precision of movement over the landscape, much as we were before towns, farming and domestication of animals began to develop 5,000-10,000 years ago.
Composition is one of the most important factors in creating impactful and memorable photos. It doesn’t matter how fascinating the conditions are; images that lack a solid composition are less likely to be remembered.
Landscape photography has changed a lot during the last years and it might even be fair to say that the term has become too broad, as there are many sub-genres and styles within it. However, impactful images all have one thing in common: they tell a story.
