Observing the Quality of Light – Photography 101

Light is photography, light is life. It’s light that reveals and hides objects, it  can create shadows and depth, or make them disappear and flatten objects. Light is the key to creating vibrant images; so knowing how light changes in intensity and quality very quickly, as well as reflective values of object is one of the hardest things to master.

Light can be hard and directional producing well-defined shadows, or it can be soft and diffused producing softer shadows; each will give you a different effect or mood in your photograph.

Hard light for example isn’t very becoming for flesh, it tends to create shadows from wrinkles and pores. Back lighting an object can accentuate colors and can also be utilized for creating silhouettes and halos. Side lighting can emphasize textures through shadows, and front lighting flattens a photo.

Featured Artist – Landscape Photographer Tordis Kayma

15 stunning mountainous landscape photographs on canvas that will take your breath away.

“In the early hours of the day when the first rays of sun start to fill the sky, a morning mist takes effect, transforming the German forest into a landscape rich with inspiration for Tordis Kayma. He wanders nature taking atmospheric shots of forest landscapes, foggy mountains, and northern night skies. The dramatic lighting and evocative mists and haze of the conifers capture the true sense of nature’s majesty.

Growing near a national park, Kayma’s passion for nature started at a young age, originating in childhood and developing into a lifelong pursuit. Now living in Berlin, the photographer continues to capture the misty mountains and valleys that filled his youth, exhibiting the beauty of the wild with his impressive stills”. – Source Redbubble Profile.

Landscape Photography Quick Tips: Revisit Locations

Don’t be afraid to revisit location you’ve photographed.

We as photographers never stop learning. To get your ultimate landscape shot, keep going back and use the knowledge you’ve learned from your previous visits of that location to explore the area again; 9 times out of 10 you’ll see something new.

It’s virtually impossible to capture all of the amazing sights of a location if you only visit it once, then move on to the next one on your photography bucket list.

We’re always looking for new scenes that inspire us, but a new scene in landscape photography is more than simply ticking boxes off a checklist of locations. The light, the seasons and weather change a scene through out the day, months and years. Returning to the same location gives you the photographer the opportunity to create work during times other people may never see.

My favorite local location is Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes Delaware. Check out the different photographs from the bay side of Henlopen over the years. Check out how the light, subjects and the land has changed during each visit.

Landscape Photography Tips & Techniques with First Man Photography: Riding the Wave


Landscape Photography Tips & Techniques with First Man Photography: Riding the Wave

Published Aug 20, 2017 by: First Man Photography

In this video landscape photographer Adam Karnacz as he witnesses and photographs a beautiful sunset during his travels in North Yorkshire and enjoy some of the beautiful heather on display.

“Landscape photography is like anything else in life. It has its ups and downs, lows and highs. On the video last week it was very emotional, I captured some amazing shots, met some incredible people and it was a big high. When you’re on top, the only way is down and it’s important not to see this as a negative but rather a natural movement in the wave of life and the photography process. At a time like this I there are two things I like to do with my landscape photography. The first option is to head off on an epic trip to somewhere amazing. I’ll be doing that soon but it’s not always possible. The second option is to come back to somewhere close to home or somewhere you know really well, slow it down and just enjoy the process. That’s exactly what I’ve done today and I’ve come back to Roseberry Topping, just couple of miles from where I grew up.

I am also very proud to be launching my landscape photography workshops. Spend the day with me and retrace the steps from one of the First Man Photography vlogs and capture some of the finest scenery the UK has to offer. The workshops will be a brilliant day and my supportive and encouraging style, enthusiasm and knowledge will give you confidence with your camera and help you capture some incredible landscape images. Book your trip now and come along for the ride.” – Adam Karnacz
