Inside the book

Top quotes

  • A good landscape photo tells a story and should convey the feelings of the photographer at the time he took the photo. No camera can do this. Only you can, by using your creativity and by learning composition techniques.

  • In general, the bigger the sensor is, the less noise in the image file. Noise from digital image sensors is the equivalent to film grain in analog cameras. Sensor noise is only a problem in low light conditions.

  • The smaller the sensor is, the larger the Depth of Field is. With a Smartphone with its tiny sensor, it is easy to get everything from foreground to background in focus.

  • The term normal lens refers to the fact this lens has an angle of view close to how our eyes see. Most kit lenses cover the normal range.

  • As a general rule, the ISO should be set to the lowest possible your camera allows and increased only if it is necessary to get the picture.

Introduction

What is landscape photography?

Landscape is one of the most popular genres in photography and maybe the most difficult to master. Why is that? It might seem straightforward to photograph landscapes. You just point your camera at a beautiful sunset - and boom! Those who have tried are often disappointed because the beautiful sunset turned out to be almost entirely black and the nice colors just a smear of orange. Not at all what you expected and how the photos from professional photographers look.

In all types of photography, there is much more in it than pointing your camera at a beautiful scene and push the shutter button. It does not even help if you upgrade to a brand new DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera.

On the other hand, one of the advantages of landscape photography compared to many other genres of photography is you don’t need a lot of (expensive) equipment to create great photos. You can make beautiful landscape photos with almost any camera when you know how to do it
