  • 6Tips & Tricks To Shoot Amazing Landscape PhotographsLearn how to take creative and incredible shots of land & nature

    1. Check out different anglesAlthough a certain angle might initially catch your eye, its important to walk around a bit to see the landscape from different perspectives. Dare to shoot from an unusual perspective and youll be surprised by what you can achieve.

    2. Isolate the elements that catch your eyeRather than trying to capture the entire breathtaking view in front of you, isolate the elements that are visually intriguing to bring depth to the image and complement the landscape.

    3. Add an element to the foregroundElements in the foreground give the viewer something to focus on and help frame the scene. Use a person, animal or a tree as a focal point to draw the eye of the viewer.

    4. Quality of lightReturn to the same spot at different times of the day to produce dramatic contrasting images. The quality of light varies with the position of the sun, which is something to keep in mind when scouting locations.

  • 7How many times have you stopped to take a photo of a beautiful landscape an incredible coastal seascape, mountains in the distance or a field of sunflowers only to find that what caught your eye is not at all what shows up in the photograph?Shooting landscapes can be tricky. Here are 10 tips & tricks that will inspire you to get creative and take incredible shots of land & nature.

    5. Include people for scaleSometimes natural phenomena dont seem as big and grand in photographs as in real life. To remedy this, include people for scale and make sure theyre a bit off-center (remember the Rule of Thirds!).

    6. Rule of ThirdsTo ensure that you create a great landscape composition, divide your photo into 3 parts, from left to right a technique known as the Rule of Thirds.

    7. Try panoramasShoot in panorama mode to really capture the entire scene in front of you. With panorama, youre often able to include extra details that you could not have with a regular landscape shot.

    8. Use geometry and lines to create structureGive the eye something to follow roads are perfect for this. Anything that creates a nice line or geometric shape can be used as a focal point to create structure and bring form to your image.

    9. Try the picture within the pictureThis technique is simple and straightforward. First, print a photograph of the landscape you would like to shoot. Then hold up the printed photograph in front of the landscape and snap your picture. Its quite fun to do and something different to try out.

    10. Get inspired by the mastersPhotographers like Ansel Adams, Maria Stenzel, Jim Brandenburg and Charlie Waite provide great inspiration for what you can accomplish with landscape photography. They demonstrate the patience and timing that is required to capture the perfect shot.

    Wildlife and Nature Photography by Kevin LewisCircle of FearAnimals, including ourselves, have a natural circle of fear. As you approach an animal it will normally watch you getting closer and gradually becoming more afraid and at some point will either run/fly off or attack you. You have just stepped inside its circle of fear. The size of this circle is very variable and depends on the attitude of the animal at that moment, is it aggressive by nature? Is it timid? Is it hungry or injured? Etc.

    If you sit quietly and let the animal approach you this circle of fear becomes much smaller because the animal has more control of the situation. Taking advantage of this will allow you to take photographs at a much closer distance giving you higher quality images.

    Fill the FrameTry to always frame the subject in the camera so you do not have to crop the image significantly. In order to do this you may have to move closer to the subject or wait for the subject to come closer to you. Moving closer will increase the likelihood of disturbing the subject so waiting for it to come to closer to you is always better. Please remember we should all coexist with wildlife and should not disturb them just for the sake of a photograph.

    CamouflageCamouflage doesnt necessarily mean wearing full-on camo gear from head to toe. What camouflage does is minimize the impact your presence has on an animal behavior by either reducing your visibility or breaking

    up your outline. Wearing drab colored clothing can be just as effective as a camouflage outfit. I would recommend wearing gloves as the white floppy things on the ends of your arms can cause animals to react instantly as you move them around. Think about carrying around some light weight scrim netting that you can throw over yourself and camera gear.

    Predicting a Birds Flight pathBirds hate to stand or fly at low level with the wind behind them and will naturally land and take off into the wind, they will also perch facing the wind. You can use this behavior to position yourself relative to the birds you

    wish to photograph and improve the chances of getting the image you want.

    Correct Exposure for In-flight BirdsIf the background is constantly changing from land to sky using an auto exposure mode will result in poor incorrectly exposed images. Try switching to manual mode and taking an exposure reading off of a neutral grey subject which is in the sam
