You’ve stumbled on an amazing scene. You pull out your camera and snap a few pictures to capture that beauty, however when you open those images on the computer, the magic is gone. The scene that took your breath away in person is lackluster in pixels. Why? How do the pros capture landscape images that are just as stunning as being there in the person? Capturing beautiful scenes isn’t simple, but with a few landscape photography tips and tricks, you can help bring some of that view home with you.
Use a tripod
A tripod is useful for getting sharp shots—and that’s a big deal in landscape photography. A good tripod will eliminate camera shake for sharper shots than you can snap handheld, even at faster shutter speeds. Many amazing landscape images are the result of longer shutter speeds to blur waves and clouds, and a tripod isn’t an optional accessory in those scenarios. Opt for a sturdy tripod that’s lightweight for carrying out to all those spectacular scenes.
