Landscape photography is the art of capturing pictures of nature and the outdoors in a way that brings your viewer into the scene.
From grand landscapes to intimate details, the best photos demonstrate the photographer's own connection to nature and capture the essence of the world around them.
We've all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape, you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see.
This is where undoubtedly I started with landscape photography. Make no mistake, like many amateur photographers I sometimes got home, look at the pictures, and found them flat and boring. All the elements that enthralled me at the time were there, but not the feeling.
This is where landscape photography is not as easy as it may seem.
What I love the most in landscape photography is finding a way to integrate more than simple pixels in my images, I always try to depict the atmosphere, the mood, what were my feelings at the time I captured the fantastic scenery I had in front of me.
This can be achieved through many different ways. Either at the time of shooting (choosing the right composition, playing with contrast, colors, lighting, etc..) , or in post processing (choosing the appropriate color tone, emphasizing on some particular details, choosing the right format, etc...)
