Landscape photography is the art that has the primary goal of capturing nature and outdoor scenes in a way that brings the person who is looking at the photo into the scene. Whether it is a big landscape or a tiny detail in nature, landscape photography shows the artist’s real and intimate connection to nature around them.

Tips for Beginners

If you are a beginner in landscape photography, or just landscape photography enthusiast, here are some easy tips to keep in mind when taking photos:

  • Take your photos horizontally – this trick will help you straighten photos, crop them in the right place, better notice elements that need brightening or darkening.
  • Bookend your photos – if you are taking photos of a few different panoramic scenes, it can be challenging to differentiate between them when flipping through the images later. At the beginning and end of every panorama, take a photo of your hand or a similar mark that will help you later.
  • Don’t be static – when taking photos of the landscape, you need to adjust to it. Fixing up your camera on a tripod and not moving it while the scenery around you changes or to capture different subjects simply won’t do.
  • Know your camera – with the nature around you moving quickly, you need to know your camera so well that you can change settings in a few seconds to capture that fading moment happening right in front of you.
