Photography 101: Landscape

It’s a big world out there! Show us what you see in a landscape.

We’ve spent time practicing our establishing shots, capturing street scenes, and observing the natural world. Today, let’s walk in the footsteps of masters like Ansel Adams and focus on landscape photography.

Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can capture a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town, or industrial area.

Channeling my inner Ansel Adams! LOL! 😀

    1. Thanks SO much!!! ❤ I was debating about the sunset at first but when I showed it to my hubby he thought it was beautiful so I added it. 😀 I've done some traveling and I wish I could afford to just travel all year round. I need to win the lottery! Maybe Santa can help make that come true! Hahaha!
