5 Quick Tips for Landscape Photography
While photography is a complex art that can take years of practice to master, it is also something that all of us dabble in from time to time. We all like to document and immortalize moments in our lives with photos, and in that sense we all are photographers to an extent.
And nowhere is this more true than in landscape photography. Get to the top of a mountain to behold an incredible view and what are you going to do? Snap a photo of course? Find yourself wowed by the beauty of a small town or village… snap a photo!
So we want to make sure that we’re doing this right. And over the course of this post, that’s exactly what you’re going to learn to do. Here are five tips for taking better landscape photos.
Get the Focus Right
When taking a photo of a person, you might want to set the manual focus to look at the foreground, thereby blurring out the background. Of course though, if you’re taking a photo of scenery, then you want the focus to be much further of course. That means you won’t get bokeh effects, but you’ll get the detail that you want from all those background details.
Too many photos of landscapes are 90% sky! This is obviously not particularly interesting, and likely not what you came to see. Point the camera down a little more, and show more of the actual view.
Unless it is a truly dramatic and interesting sky of course!
Think About Exposure
Exposure is an issue no matter what you’re photography, but it becomes even more of an issue when shooting landscapes and scenery. That’s because you’ll likely be shooting into the light and the sky, which can cause everything else to become washed out. Lock your auto-exposure on the landscape that you want to see – not the sky.
Don’t Over Zoom
A lot of people make the mistake of thinking their cameras have these powerful zooms, and so they zoom in as close as they possibly can to get detail. In fact though, a ‘digital zoom’ does little more than crop the image, meaning that you actually aren’t getting any more ‘information’. Make sure you only use manual zoom to maintain the quality of your footage.
Create Depth and Scale
Finally, you should also seek to add depth and scale to your photos. Avoid photographing just that view, which risks looking a little flat. Adding a human subject in front of the view, or maybe finding a way to frame the shot (perhaps with some out-of-focus foliage in one corner), can make the view much more interesting. Other options include tilting the camera upward, or looking for an element that will lead the viewer’s eye into the background.
Think about the background, middle ground, and foreground in all cases. If your shot is ‘all background’ with nothing of interesting to break it up, then it’s going to come out a little bit dull.
