Landscapes Practical tips – Check weather/light conditions (time of day) Spare batteries/Cards Bag Lenses Tripod for long exposures (any slower than 1/30th sec tripod needed) Avoid lense flair (Sun), if lense can’t see the sun flair will be avoided! Settings White balance – Auto I.S.O – If bright sun light, ISO 100/200 In the main you are going to want all the picture in focus. To achieve this effect, use as small as f/stop as your camera allows, say f/16. The smaller the f/stop the greater the depth of field achieved. Use Aperture Priority or Landscape mode. If water is involved, a slow shutter speed will give the impression of flowing water. Panorama (tripod essential) Composition If you mentally divide your screen into three horizontal and three vertical sections, where the lines intersect are focal points. Focal points are what the eyes naturally seek out when they look at a photograph. It’s not a hard and fast rule, so don’t go bonkers trying to place your subject right at a focal point. You could use the law of thirds to capture 1/3 land and 2/3 sky, or the other way round, 2/3 land and 1/3 sky. Adding a foreground object might help achieve a sense of three dimensionality Texture in the landscape Homework Take a range of Landscape photographs. Consider composition, lighting, features in the foreground, middle ground and background. (ensure your images are correctly exposed!) Print out a contact sheet and stick into your sketch book and annotate a selection of images. Select three final images, print and mount into your sketch book. You now need to start considering the end product, it is important that final outcomes are printed to the best quality that you can manage (www.photobox.co.uk) * ANSEL ADAMS (The F64’s) * * * * *
