Basics to Remember in Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is undoubtedly one of the most popular genres of photography out there. If you think about it, when you’re out to take landscape photos, you’re not just taking photos – you also get to be close to nature and enjoy what it has to offer. This could be one of the reasons why many photographers fall in love with landscape photography. In today’s video, we have photographer Adam Karnacz who shares some essential ideas that you should keep in mind while you grow in the art of landscape photography:

Photography gear is something that photographers of all genres love to discuss. It’s the same with landscape photography too. But as you might’ve heard many times, the best gear is the one that you have. And this is true most of the time. An important idea that Karnacz shares regarding upgrading your gear is to do so only if you regularly come across situations where you find that your present setup is limiting your work. Otherwise, what you currently have should be sufficient.

Another interesting piece of advice he shares is about how being technically sound helps you to better express your creativity. This is to say that being a good technician really helps you to be a good artist. This way, you understand the best way you can present your creative vision. This not only means knowing how your camera works, but also other things like the golden ratio, rule of thirds, or any other composition guides.

Besides these valuable suggestions, Karnacz also stresses the importance of developing your own workflow.  This way, you can quickly tackle the mundane tasks and focus on the more important aspects such as on-location creative thinking. And yeah, remember that landscape photography is not just about taking photos. Be sure to spend some time enjoying nature as well. Go with the flow and make a story out of anything that makes you feel happy.
