Landscapes, Nature Pictures
Landscape photography is a test of patience. The photographer’s paint brush is light. Outdoors you often have to wait for that magical moment. The best times of day are the first and last two hours of daylight, the times when colours appear at their most vibrant because light then strikes at an oblique angle. As in most photography, try to simplify the scene. “Less is more” is particularly true in landscape photography. Use ISO 50 or 100 film to guarantee colour saturation and a sharp image giving excellent detail. Polarization and graduated filters are almost a must to bring the best out of a sky. A tripod is essential in order to use a small aperture and slow exposure to increase depth of field.
