Picture Taking Points For Brownfield Maine

Composition - The Soul of the Photo

Composition is the soul of the photo. Composition results in the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration starts when you disconnect together with the interior battles of everyday life and free the spirit to have the world around you. Actually being in the moment and experiencing nature links you with all around you.

Awareness of your surroundings without interference of external ideas clears the mind, although it might sound like meditation and sharpening your perceptions. Pictures seem where you didn't see them. The components start to align and art emerges.

Joseph Cornell in his novel 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into an area that you would like to photograph. Rather than setting up the camera and shooting. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and sense the moment. Quite softly become conscious of nature. The Native Americans called this 'quiet hunting'. Nature will speak to you, but you should be quiet. Nature speaks gently. 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 needed to photograph. It might be that I was not ready or nature did not need to reveal herself. Maybe she didn't feel photogenic that day. Scenes appear as if by magic, other days. If you can't find anything to shoot on any specified day, so don't be disappointed. Utilize that time to scout the area for future chances and revel in the truth that you've got a chance to be outside.

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

When seeking that image, don't run yourself. Time with nature is a joy all by its own self. The absolute delight of being one with the outdoors is worth the experience, in case you don't find anything to shoot.

Odds are you already possess the camera you will use to shoot landscapes, but do read this anyhow, and that means you have the knowledge of what to seek out when it's time to upgrade. Unlike the bygone times of film cameras, in which you could have used the same camera for many years, the rapid advances in digital technology and breathtaking developments in image quality offered by the latest camera versions encourage digital photographers to update every three or two years.

NIKON AND CANON CAMERAS ARE OUTSTANDING!

All digital cameras can produce great landscape images, but some models are clearly better for landscapes than many others. While Barbara shoots Nikon just for the record, John has used Canon cameras for more than 30 years. You might be surprised to hear two systems, are shot by us but it makes perfect sense to us. We always know our Nikon equipment is Canon things and Barbara's belong to John, so we never get mixed up. This makes things easy, keeps peace in the family, and we each shoot that which we like. Effectively teaching more than a thousand photo students each year is essential to us, also. Completely understanding both the Canon and Nikon systems helps us educate, because the vast majority of our photography pupils also shoot Nikon or Canon.

Both Canon and Nikon offer outstanding cameras and broad choices of lenses, including high quality prime (non-zoom) lenses, tilt-shift lenses that control depth of field and convergence of vertical lines, zoom lenses with image stabilization, and specialized macro lenses. Nikon and Canon each have cameras using a full-frame sensor that offers the full effect of wide-angle lenses.

OTHER EXCELLENT CAMERA SYSTEMS

Several other companies build digital camera systems and they make fine gear. The important players include Sigma, Fujifilm, Pentax, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, and Olympus. Their cameras are totally with the capacity of shooting at exceptional landscape images, but their overall systems are drastically smaller compared to the Nikon and Canon systems, leaving far fewer choices of lenses and accessories to nature photographers.
