Landscapes and Man-Made Elements
Great landscape and nature photography is not always about finding the most picturesque scene with only natural elements. Part of the beauty I find in our world is the ability to exist with in nature. Even though there is a lot of damage caused by mankind, there are also very beautiful scenes in the world that mankind has touched and inhabit with minimal damage. Take a look at the effects of man on the landscape near your home and use them as photographic subjects. The incorporation of man made objects in your landscape can help create balance of life in the image and it could help the viewer connect to the scene.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, sharing the damage man creates in the landscape could create environmental awareness of a situation. Don’t be afraid to capture and share what you see; even if it is less than favorable scene.
