Photography 101 - Tips and Editing Techniques

Lets talk about landscape photographers….

This is a landscape post so I thought it needed a landscape photo. I went through all my landscape pictures and found my favorite, just seemed like this blog needed a picture. This picture was taken last month in Montana.

Last week I took a class  on landscape photography. I wanted to share some great tips I learned during the lecture! The first part was an introduction to some of the great landscape photographers. This particular lecture was given by Neil the owner of Rocky Mountain School of Photography. An amazing man who is passionate about photography and teaching. He is one of those teachers who was meant to teach. He has an energy about him that just washes over the class creating a energy of excitement to learn.

To start off we talked about influential landscape artists.
Of course the first is Ansel Adams. A name that is recognized by most. If one was asked name a famous photographer most would know the name even if they haven’t seen any of his work:

Ansel Adams
Eliot Porter
Galen Rowell
John Sexton
Jim Brandenburg
David Muench
Freeman Patterson
Andris Apse

What about you? Who is your favorite? Which landscape artist am I missing I am surely  missing someone amazing!

  1. Landscape photography is still an area that I haven’t looked into too much to be honest, though I intend to. I live in Cornwall, UK, where there are some beautiful panoramas around, so I should get out and take some landscape pics soon!

  3. Take your advice…. Get up at the crack of dawn and head to the green rolling hills! You’re in a place that is only in my dreams so far away! Ah so lovely!!! Sometimes I think I need to go on a trip to take some amazing landscape pictures, but really you just have to get up early and go:)

  4. Thanks Marcel! I have been sitting here looking through all the beautiful landscape pictures. It is so inspiring to just sit back and look at all these amazing pictures guess what aperture they used or why they picked a particular foreground.

    Your pictures are great! love the fact that you have all the information right at the bottom of the pictures!
