In a new series here on Photoventure we’ll be posting weekly photographic challenges for all of you to get the creative juices flowing. This week we’ll kick things off by asking you to test your powers of composition and shoot square images!
Shooting dramatic landscapes takes a lot of time and patience, which many non-photographers often don’t realise. The conditions need to be perfect to capture the type of image you’ve pre-visualised, but many times landscape photographers just aren’t lucky enough to experience the right conditions all at the same time.
You need to get to the stage where camera settings become second nature, so you’re not fiddling around with them just as a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity unfolds.
You don’t have to restrict yourself to daylight hours for shooting landscapes, you can shoot them during the night as well, and there are some great lessons that you’ll learn along the way.
