What is Landscape Photography?
The very best landscape photographers have the ability to capture the heart and soul of a particular location. They invite the viewer in to new and exciting worlds and through their use of the camera they allow us to glimpse phenomena that is often unseen with the naked eye. Each landscape photographers style varies massively as well as the particular subject matter.
Wikipedia describes landscape photography as “showing spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.”
Ansel Adams famously said “I hope that my work will encourage self expression in others and stimulate the search for beauty and creative excitement in the great world around us”
This appreciation for beauty in landscapes seems a constant theme with most landscape photographers. They seem fascinated with recording the ever changing scenery. The fact a landscape will look completely different from one day to the next seems to be a driving force that keeps them shooting.
