Tips by Nitin Khanna on Landscape Photography
I feel at peace while waiting for a perfect shooting opportunity, finding the best shooting location and observing the light creating a completely different scene in a few hours.
Below are some tips for landscape photography that I have learned in my early years:
• Select the maximum depth of the field : Sometimes you may want to make photos more creative with the use of a narrow depth of a field even though the landscape photography needs to let the whole scene in focus range as much as possible. The easiest way is to use the smallest aperture setting. Remember, the smaller the aperture, the greater the depth of the photo you will get.
Always remember, smaller aperture means less light camera sensor induction. So you need to do exposure compensation, such as rise the ISO or extend the shutter speed, or both.
• Use a tripod : When using a small aperture, a longer shutter time is required. At this time, you need to make your camera stable throughout the exposure process. In fact, the practice of using a tripod will be helpful even if you can use the high-speed shutter. If you still want the camera to be more stable while shooting, then you can consider using a cable release or a wireless remote control system.
• Find the focus point : All photos require a certain focus and landscape photos are no exception. In fact, if there is no focus, the picture will be hollow, the screen will be hollow and the audience will not be able to catch the expression of the picture, because they will not be able to find focus.
In landscape photography, the focus can be in different forms, such as tree branches, rock formations, buildings and the like. In addition to this, consider choosing what kind of focus you should consider more to locate the appropriate focus point. I follow the rule of thirds in such cases.
• Consider the prospects : Prospects are one of those elements that can let your photos show up. Make sure that you carefully consider your selected prospects and place the attraction in the forefront while shooting. It cannot only take people deep into the picture, but also can create a protracted sense of the depth of field.
These are the points that I follow to make my photos more meaningful and valuable. To have a look at my work, visit my website www.nitinkhanna.net.
