These example photos are almost always over saturated and the lighting has been edited to the point that these photos look completely unrealistic, like poorly made HDR photos. The photo editing has destroyed the dynamics of the photos and the feel that the original scenery might have had. Sure they look nice in the “MTV-kind-of” way, but it is a bit tiresome when every example photo looks like this.

Congratulations, a comprehensive set of landscape photography tips. An additional tip that could be added is to photograph landscape panoramas, stitching together a series of photographs, even a layered series with more than one row. Many post-processing softwares provide excellent stitching functions. Panoramas allow the photographer to use a more moderate focal length lens which preserves a more normal perspective; therefore, more detail is preserved in the background. There are restrictions of course, such as movement in the scene which prevents accurate stitching, large areas in the scene with no detail or tonal differentiation which confuses the stitching software, and perspective distortion with a large degree of rotation views, particularly if the foreground has linearity in the scene. To optimize the technique: 1. Use manual or locked exposure so that all images are equally exposed. 2. Overlap images by about 20 – 30%. 3. For the purist, pivot camera at lens center axis which requires a special mount plate for a tripod (however standing in one spot and rotating your body usually works well) . 4. Select a moderate focal length to avoid distortion issues. Of course, experiment with different focal lengths. 5. Photograph at least two panoramic series of the same scene. Photos can be exchanged between series in the event a single photo is not satisfactory. 6. For a panorama with a large view angle, a polarizing filter can create an uneven sky color and density. For the DSLR user an important advantage is the large number of pixels that comprise a stitched image, enhancing detail and allowing larger prints. Even stitching just two portrait oriented images can give an outstanding landscape photograph that doesn’t even have the appearance of a panorama. A vendor has even developed a robot mount for digital cameras that shoots preprogrammed series of multi-level images that create panoramas that would be difficult to produce any other way.

That’s why I want to show you a breathtaking collection of landscape photography. Hopefully, these pictures will be enough to get you moving (if not, you can put your camera on Ebay – you don’t need it anyway). But before you go out to take pictures, don’t forget that an important element of landscape photography is the light to the scenery. It’s best to take photos at dusk or dawn with low angle light. This light renders the landscape with low contrast and sidelight giving a nice feeling of depth. Also, low contrast allows to capture more details. Unfortunately, the perfect light goes away very quickly, so be sure to find the right angle in advance. When you’re done, come back and post your results in our comment section!

Dean January 12, 2010 11:13 pm Maximising Depth of Field. You’ve hit the nail on the head about how important the depth of field is in landscape photographs, but yet you have made no mention of the most important concept there is to landscape photographers to maximising the depth of field. It’s called “Hyperfocal Distance”. If you’re serious about doing landscape photographs then you need to get your head around this simple concept, and you need to use it. And as someone teaching landscape photographs, you need to teach the students it.

Willie November 6, 2010 12:35 am I like your tips, well written and very helpful. According to your writing you are a well experienced and great photographer. But what makes me wonder is why the photos you have posted above as examples are photos of different photographers. Are they really yours or they belong to somebody else? If they are not yours then why use them as examples on this articles? Why not use your own photos as a good example for your tips?

Take a little more time with your shots – particularly in finding a more interesting point of view to shoot from. This might start with finding a different spot to shoot from than the scenic look out (wander down paths, look for new angles etc), could mean getting down onto the ground to shot from down low or finding a higher up vantage point to shoot from.

Travel and Landscape Photography March 17, 2009 01:52 pm I was just searching for another landscape article but found yours. Great article! Personally landscape photography is my favorite field. I can agree with most of the points in your article. I would probably add another one – “Do your homework”. Study the location you want to shoot before shooting, find a good spot (is it a sunset or sunrise spot?), have a backup spot, return to the same location back and back, watch the weather. Be zealous and you will be rewarded.

Explain your tip: Capture movements this is the type of fast paced action shot that most photographers think about when they are trying to show motion in their photos; but it is not the only way to show motion. Think about it for a moment. If you were watching a wind mill on a windy day, how would those blades look? If they were frozen in midair like the basketball, you wouldn’t be able to tell if there was actually any wind that day or not This is the type of fast paced action shot that most photographers think about when they are trying to show motion in their photos; but it is not the only way to show motion.
