back to the pic tip...
the biggest mistake most people (when i say most people, i mean me) make when taking landscape pics is not paying attention to the details. you see something pretty and you just snap the pic, but there's more to it than that.
there are 3 things i focus on when shooting landscapes: composition, lighting, and angles. when you're setting up to take your shot, you want to look for that something special that gives it visual interest, adding dimension and setting it apart from all the others.
to keep this simple, let's break it down to a few basic things you can look for when shooting landscapes:
now that you have a some basic areas to focus on when shooting landscapes, that should give you a great foundation to start from. you don't need a fancy camera (as long as your pixel ratio is decent) or expensive editing software to take fantastic landscape photos! all you need is an eye for it and a sense of your own personal style!
also, if you haven't already, stop by three years down to enter the give-away, where i'm offering a set of 11x14 landscape prints while there's still time!
