A Sensible Way To Acquire A Impressive Look On Your Photo For Westerose Alberta

Composition - The Spirit of the Photo

Composition is the core of the photo. Composition contributes to the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration starts when you disconnect with the interior battles of everyday life and free the spirit to have the universe around you. Truly being in the moment and experiencing nature links you with all around you.

It might seem like meditation, but comprehension of your surroundings without interference of ideas that are external clears the mind and sharpening your perceptions. Where you did not see them before pictures seem. The elements start to align and art emerges.

Joseph Cornell in his book 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into an area that you'd like to photograph. Instead of shooting and setting up the camera. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and sense the moment. Quite softly become conscious of nature. The Native Americans called this 'silent hunting'. Nature will talk to you personally, but you must be quiet. Nature talks softly. In the event that you are patient, nature will reveal herself to you. And unbelievable images will appear.

There are many times that I've entered the woods with camera in hand and not found anything that I wanted to photograph. It may be that I was not ready or nature didn't need to show herself. Perhaps she did not feel photogenic that day. Scenes appear as if by magic, other days. If you can't find anything to shoot on any given day so do not be disappointed. Use that time to scout the area for future chances and revel in the fact that you have an opportunity to be outside.

Take this as a chance to plan for future shots. At these times believe, what if the light was coming from an alternate direction. Coming back in the early morning or late afternoon may create a better image. The landscape changes. Perhaps shooting in the autumn, together with the leaves in brilliant colors, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you desire.

Do not hurry yourself when seeking that image. Time with nature is a joy all by its own self. In the event you don't find anything to shoot, the absolute joy of being one with the outdoors is worth the experience.

For today's photo tip, lets talk a bit about landscape photography tips and techniques. This will be a review of things we have discussed before, but many of us have not really tried using them. Place as a goal for this particular weekend to get out there and use these landscape photography hints and techniques to create something you could take pride in!

Light - with a portrait, we've got complete control. We can adjust the light levels, we can place our light where we want, we can set modifiers in front of it - like umbrellas, scrims, diffusion stuff, gobos and so on... We may do pretty much anything we need to get the image our mind has conjured up!

With landscape and cityscape photography, we are pretty much stuck with what nature supplies us. There's not much we can do.

Or is there? With some preplanning, we can nearly ensure a gorgeous shot!

In an outside, landscape setting, there isn't much we can do to alter or adjust the light, but we can become hyper aware of what light does at various times of day - and in various weather conditions.

First and foremost to be successful as a landscape or cityscape photographer - you must really have a urge to lose sleep.

What am I talking about? Glad you asked! If you intend to begin capturing those spectacular landscape pictures with all the colors that are beautiful, there is really only two times of day to shoot - at twilight and at dawn.

But for a photographer, dawn and dusk are a little more expanded than you are perhaps thinking. About twenty minutes before the sun first peeks over the horizon in the morning there is a 'fictitious' dawn. This time of day will give you those intense cobalt blue colors you see in competition winners, but haven't been able to see in nature!

As the sun gets closer and closer to the horizon, the colors will start to get pinker. The colors you see at daybreak AREN'T exactly the same as the colours you see at sundown. (They're more red and orange.)

Thus, drag yourself out of bed a couple hours before daybreak in order that you will have sufficient time to grab a cup of coffee (so you are conscious enough to focus) and make your way to your predetermined place, get set up and start shooting during the false dawn.

See what I mean about wanting an urge to lose sleep? Hereis the great thing, the majority of your friends as well as camera club contest will probably be snoring away while you 'get the chance!'

Incidentally, there's a sunset that is fictitious about 20 minutes after the sun goes down. You're not spending that time watching TV are you?

In addition to the terrific colors, you also get excellent light angles!

Think of the last photo you saw of a body builder... Where was the light? I'd venture to guess that it was to the side. Actually about 90 degrees to the camera - model axis.

This peeking side light causes heavy shadowing around the muscles making them seem bigger and actually more defined. The light causes some specular highlights also - which makes the difference between highlight and shadow even more striking.

Now think of your landscape or your cityscape as a model that is muscle bound. The shadows due to the glancing sun will help accentuate and define the forms.

Next look for an interesting scene! Use foreground elements to draw the eye into the photo. Utilize the rule of thirds, leading lines, diagonals and other compositional techniques to bring the viewer's eye to the 'star' of your photo. (Be sure you have a well defined 'star!')

Finally, throw in a number of clouds to reflect the sun's colours and add some visual interest to the sky and you may be well on your strategy to winning photo contests!

Do all of this at dawn - then do a shot of the exact same scene at noon. Ultimately, do it again at sundown and compare all your results. I think you will rapidly begin to comprehend just how important techniques all the photo hints and rules we have been discussing really are!

Take record of these landscape photography hints and techniques, and make it a target to USE THEM this weekend! Check back tomorrow for more...
