Landscape photography is a classic. Who has not tried once to capture the beauty of a landscape by taking a photo? We love it all. But sometimes this type of photography can resist us a little .. How many pictures of landscapes have finished in the trash of our computer because they were not satisfied to us the least?
Today’s article will quench the thirst of many nature lovers. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you master landscape photography, produce correct photos, and even get amazingly beautiful photos. It is simply to know these tricks and to follow them to the letter.
Uses a wide-angle lens
When capturing a photo of a natural landscape we usually look for a wide frame as possible. For this you will need to work with small focal length targets, something between 16mm and 24mm would be fine. Other lower or higher focal lengths can also give you a good result, but ideally you should move in that range.
Use small diaphragm openings
Sometimes in portrait or object photography we like to focus on the subject and blur the background. In landscape photography it is not so. We are interested in having the whole picture focused uniformly. To achieve this we have to use relatively small apertures of the diaphragm. You know that the higher the value f / the smaller the aperture. I recommend that for landscapes always use f / 11 openings or more. Beware, if you have the camera at f / 3.5 or f / 1.4 the result will be rather disastrous.
Uses a tripod
If you follow my previous advice to use small apertures (f / 11 value or more) as an unwanted side effect the camera will have less light, so the photo will be too dark. To avoid this you will need to use a slow bit of aperture speeds, which will cause the photo to get a little blurred and blurred. So it will be IMPERATIVE to use a tripod with which you will ensure to your camera all the stability that the situation requires.
