Hello all, we are back to the LANDSCAPE theme, and this week’s theme gives you a lot of leeway. In fact, most of the landscape themes we have practiced this year could be adapted to fit this theme.
This week, try to get the big picture. Show us sweeping, grand landscapes, with a clearly defined horizon.
When shooting, try using a smaller aperture to get lots of depth of field. This will help convey a sense of scale and the feeling that the horizon goes on and on and on….
Don’t be afraid of black and white. The contrast between sky and land can be shown nicely in a black and white image.
Have a wide angle lens? Don’t be afraid to use it! If you don’t have a wide lens, try making a panorama!
Sky? Yes! Clouds? Oh yeah! Snow? You know it! Mountains? Absolutely! Ocean? Of course! Sunset? Oui!
There are a lot of landscape horizon opportunities out there, you just have to get out and shoot!
The rules are pretty simple:
Post one original (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+, Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org. or #photochallenge2014.
The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2014 Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
For the active outdoor enthusiast that wants to keep their camera/binoculars at the ready and always secure. Go out and discover!
