Landscape Photography

Also referred to as Nature Photography Can include landscapes, wildlife, plants,

close-ups of natural scenes and textures Puts a strong emphasis on the artistic value

of the photo, more so than photojournalism and documentary photography

Genre that is meant to show the beauty of the natural world

Page 3: Nature/Landscape Photographers. Landscape Photography Also referred to as Nature Photography Can include landscapes, wildlife, plants, close-ups of natural

Show as little human activity as possible Popular subjects are waterfalls, & mountain

vistas - have neutral density or polarizing filters - what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG)

Has become a valuable tool to inspire environmental stewardship - captures the beauty of unspoiled places

Created with a wide angle lens, tripod, small apertures (f/11 to f/22) to maximize depth of field

Wildlife Photography

Devoted to capturing interesting/unique animals in action - eating, fighting, in flight

Usually shot in the wild (some game farms allow photographers)

Different technique than Landscape - wide apertures to gain a fast shutter speed, freeze subject in motion, and blur the background

Can also be shot with a long telephoto lenses - good if far away from the subject

Aperture & Shutter Speeds

Here’s where it starts to get a little tricky!!

Exposure deals with the amount of light you are allowing to come into the camera

This is controlled by adjusting the shutter speed and f-stop settings

Page 15: Nature/Landscape Photographers. Landscape Photography Also referred to as Nature Photography Can include landscapes, wildlife, plants, close-ups of natural

Shutter Speed Based on the factor of 2

The lower the number, the more light is coming into the camera (slower speed)

The higher the number, the less light is coming into the camera (higher speed)

Page 16: Nature/Landscape Photographers. Landscape Photography Also referred to as Nature Photography Can include landscapes, wildlife, plants, close-ups of natural

The Shutter Speeds

1 1/2 1/4 1/8 1/15 1/30 1/60 1/125 1/250 1/500 1/1000

This is the amount of time the light will have to get inside the camera

Aperture

Is the opening in the lens - the “hole” in the lens

Also based on the factor of 2 The lower the number, the more exposure of

light in the camera, called Opening up The higher the number, the less exposure of

light in the camera, called Closing down

The Aperture Settings

1 1.4 2.8 4 5.6 8 11 16 22 32 This is the amount of light coming into

the camera In order to control the Shutter Speed

and Aperture Settings, you will need to switch your camera over to Manual (M) mode

Page 19: Nature/Landscape Photographers. Landscape Photography Also referred to as Nature Photography Can include landscapes, wildlife, plants, close-ups of natural

Shutter Speed & F/stop Combinations

If you set the camera at a f-stop of f/8 and a shutter speed of 1/60 second, you will get the same result as if you set it at a f-stop of f/5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/125 - called equivalent exposure settings

You will know when you have Optimum exposure - a bar should indicate it on your screen or in the eye piece at the bottom
