Landscape (Spain and Dolomite)


Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can capture a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town, or industrial area.   ~ Cheri Lucas Rowlands, Photo 101 


Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often

the supreme disappointment.

~ Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984)

An American photographer and environmentalist

Notes: With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. Adams primarily used large-format cameras because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.

  1. I love these landscapes. Usually I keep a building or natural structure as the main focal point but I have to try this technique. Whenever I’ve taken landscapes there is usually a mountain or a river or something that I am focused on.


  2. I love your landscape images -and that first one reminds me of a city I tried to paint once….
    also, enjoyed the tidbit note on ansel adams – one of my college roommates loved his work and I kept thinking of her room with his pictures hanging as I read that he used “large-format cameras” how cool…..
