These photos were taken the last couple years over the course of our travels. Can you imagine them minus the blue sky?
There are few simple things to consider if you want to capture beautiful landscape photography like the pros.
Landscape Photography Tips
Tip #1- Check the weather ahead of time. Mother Nature doesn't always cooperate with your photo shoot plans. Unless you have an extravagant sealed camera you will want to protect yours from the rain.
Tip #2- Use a polarizing filter to enhance the color and contrast of your blue sky or actions to enhance your photos post processing.
Tip #3- Don't forget about Depth of Field (DOF) for your scenery shots. Generally you will want to maximize your DOF by choosing a small aperture setting (larger f-stop number).
Tip #4- Have a tripod handy. By increasing the f-stop for deeper DOF you extend the shutter speed making it imperative to steady the camera.
Tip #5- Avoid shooting at midday if possible to stay away from harsh light and shadows.
That's all I have for now. Can't wait to see your blue sky pics!
