Amazing Photographer Thoughts For La Chute Louisiana

Composition - The Core of the Photo

Composition is the heart of the photo. Composition contributes to the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration begins when you disconnect together with the internal struggles of everyday life and free the spirit to have the universe around you. Experiencing nature and truly being in the moment links you with all around you.

Knowledge of your surroundings without hindrance of external ideas clears the mind, although it might seem like meditation and sharpening your perceptions. Where you didn't 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 the camera up. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and feel the minute. Very quietly become conscious of nature. The Native Americans called this 'quiet hunting'. You will be spoken to by nature, but you have to be quiet. Nature speaks softly. If 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 needed to photograph. It could be that I was not ready or nature didn't wish to show herself. That day maybe she didn't feel photogenic. Scenes appear as if by magic, other days. If you can't find anything to shoot on any given day so don't be disappointed. Use that time to scout the place for future chances and revel in the fact that you've got a chance to be outside.

Choose this as the opportunity to plan for future shots. At these times believe, what if the light was coming from an alternate way. Coming back in the early morning or late day may create a better image. The landscape changes. Maybe shooting in the fall, together with the leaf in brilliant colours, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you desire.

When seeking that image, do not rush yourself. Time with nature is a joy all by its own self. The absolute pleasure of being one with the outside is worth the encounter, in the event you don't find anything to shoot.

On what is needed to shoot through the night, to assist anyone that is curious I Have recorded several hints below. I've been getting a little into nighttime landscape photography of late. Yesterday evening I had lots of enjoyment with some fellow pictures playing with different coloured lights to produce effects that we can't record with normal human eyesight. Long exposures open-up a universe of creativity and possibilities. The image below was taken over the course of 2 minutes whilst my fellow photographer pal Ian Dixon slowly moved his feet 360 degrees around a pivot point whilst spinning a coloured LED light. Whilst it seems like an easy process in theory it's really rather tricky to form a perfect sphere as the distance in the swings has to be kept continuous. Getting it right makes for an intriguing effect and something to add further visual interest to a night time landscape photograph.

Night Landscape Photography Hints:

Please notice you will require a camera equipped with the flash mode

Look through the optical view finder - Live View will be worthless to you when composing an image. Better still try and arrive whilst it is still light to let you compose the scene and focus

If make use of a torch to illuminate the focal point and when you can't manually focus by illuminating the desired focus point, you have to focus in the dark, set the lens to infinity and back it off by just a millimetre or two

Set to Auto

With your camera set to Aperture Priority (AV) mode, set the aperture to f/8 and raise your camera's ISO to the maximum (i.e. 1600). Depress the shutter button and take note of what the determined shutter speed is

Now change from the AV mode to the Flash mode - this is the only mode which allows you to capture exposures greater than 30 seconds

Finally, fall the ISO to 100 and adjust the shutter speed to compensate. For instance, falling the ISO from 1600 down to 100 represents 4 stops (800, 400, 200, 100) where every time you halve the value it equals to one stop. What this means is that if the shutter speed was 30 seconds previously then it'd have to be corrected to grow by 4 stops which would be 480 secs (8 minutes) (60, 120, 240, 480). It is necessary to shift the shutter speed and not the aperture as to preserve depth of field that you just desire

Bonus Hint: Avoid turning on the camera's noise reduction as it will result in taking longer for the image to write to the memory card (the same amount of time as required for the exposure) before becoming accessible for viewing on the LCD screen. Instead reduce any noise that may have been introduced during the Post Production process into the image
