Landscape (Spain and Dolomite)

IMG_7524-1

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…..
