While 70mm isn’t the favorite focal length of most landscape photographers, James Popsys and Nigel Danson decided to see what they can do with it. In fact, they made it an interesting challenge: they got together at the same location and shot all their photos limiting themselves only to this focal length. Let’s see what they came up with.
What’s in your camera bag? For me, it obviously depends on what, where and how I’m shooting. I generally have a minimum gear grab bag ready that would easily cover most situations in a pinch, but if I’m being more specialised I would definitely take my time to pack specifically for each situation. For landscape photography, I am very much aware of having to carry all of my own gear, so I try to keep it as light as possible. But again, it depends on where I’m going, the weather conditions, and how long I plan to be out for. In this video Photo Tom runs us through all his essential gear that he takes with him on his landscape adventures.
As I said a gazillion times before, we all make mistakes, and that’s totally cool as long as we learn from them. But oftentimes we may not even be aware that we make them, even if we’re already experienced photographers. In this great video, Mads Peter Iversen talks about landscape photography mistakes you may not even be aware of, and you’re still making them at least occasionally. I sure know I do.
Landscape photography is one of my favorite genres, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll love the winning photos of the 2021 Natural Landscape Photography Awards. The best image of the year shows the tip of an iceberg, and wouldn’t let me stop staring at it in awe. But it’s only… well, a tip of the iceberg, as this contest showcases plenty more stunning photos in the winners’ gallery. So, let’s check them out!
Foggy mornings make many people want to stay inside under a blanket. But if you’re a photographer, they are more likely to make you grab your gear and go outside. Fog gives your photos a whole new dimension and you may want to use every occasion to shoot in these conditions. So, can you predict when the weather will be foggy? The short answer is yes, and Adrian of aows will tell you how in this video.
Shooting with wide very angle lenses can often produce some unique issues that you don’t encounter with other focal lengths. In this video, Toma Bonciu takes us through his thought process in taking great landscape images using a 17-40mm lens. It’s all too easy to try to fit the entire scene in front of you into the photo, but wide-angle lenses are well, wide, and so you need to be aware of the entire scene around you.
