5 Tips for Successful Landscape Photography
The 03/05/2022 to 10:53
Do you want to capture the beauty of natural landscapes or cityscapes in photographs with an original composition? These tips will give you some inspiration to simply improve your landscape and nature photos.
1- Get rid of the landscape format
We often have the impulse to immortalise our portraits in the dedicated format and landscapes in a horizontal format. However, many scenes lend themselves to landscape photography from above. The verticality of a mountain top, for example, will be accentuated.
2 - Get some height
To capture the immensity of the landscape unfolding before your eyes, get a little height. A bird's eye view will enhance the dynamism of the landscape and the originality of your composition.
3 - Keep your feet on the ground
Do you want to accentuate the impression of immensity of a forest? Amplify the immensity of a skyscraper? Think of the low angle, a shot that reinforces the power of a composition as in this photo by John Eastcott and Yva Mamatiuk offered by the YellowKorner galleries.
4 - Bring life to your landscape photography
Landscape photography does not necessarily means empty spaces. Including a person in your composition will allow you to capture the proportions while breathing life into your shots as Debra Kellner has done in this stunning photo at YellowKorner.

5 - Don't miss your appointment
Successful landscape photography requires being in the right place at the right time and paying special attention to natural light. In photography, there are two appointments that cannot be missed: the blue hour and the golden hour. The former evokes the few moments before dawn when the sky turns a deep blue.
The better known Golden Hour occurs just after sunrise or before sunset. The softness of this light offers landscapes drenched in pink to orange light.
Your most beautiful landscape photographs can be printed on photo paper in the format and finish of your choice in professional Zeinberg quality. A landscape photo printed in a Collector Format will give your home a unique style and allow you to enjoy your best travel photos every day. Do you want to emphasise the depth of the scene and the immensity of the landscape? A print on photo paper with a shadowbox will make your personal landscape photos irresistible.
