Hi, @tashavk! Glad you have questions- that’s what makes a good learner.
IMG_1793-2.jpg is probably my favorite. One key to good landscape shots is simplicity. If you look at a scene and try to capture everything it will tend to make the viewer feel uncomfortable and cluttered. Whereas if you always try for simplicity, you’ll be able to focus more on what you really want the viewer to see. If that makes sense? As an example, I really like image 1793-2. It felt a little too unintentional so I cropped it down to my favorite part of the sky and only included one tree silhouette.
I’m still learning as well about simplicity in photos but I hope this helps. Editing is also a large part of completing an image in my opinion so I put a screen shot below of some of the edits I made. If you don’t have an editing program there are plenty of free ones out there to try out.
I also felt like it worked better as a vertical photo since there was hardly any horizon.
Keep taking photos. You’re doing a great job!April 13, 2021 at 4:25 pm #62027April 13, 2021 at 6:07 pm #62030
I don’t know what kind of camera you have, but you could mess around with the color profiles in your camera menu so that the photos come out looking better right out of the camera. As an example my Nikon d5200 or Z50 both have basic color settings: Standard, Vivid, Monochrome, Flat, other unique looks etc. A lot of camera’s also have minor in-camera editing (saturation, sharpening, cropping) that you could do if you look hard enough in the menu’s and manual. 🙂April 13, 2021 at 6:09 pm #62032April 14, 2021 at 7:54 am #62034
It’s possible I have something like that…I’ll have to mess around. It’s also possible that I don’t because of the lower model that I have so I’ll have to checkApril 26, 2021 at 1:39 pm #62275James StaddonKeymaster
These pictures will make great content for the webinar tomorrow, @tashavk! Will plan to critique them then, especially if you’re there. https://www.lenspiration.com/product/photo-coaching-64/May 5, 2021 at 11:05 am #62388
