Autumn is coming
Autumn is coming and its always a great opportunity to shoot some dramatic landscapes especially where I am based in The Cotswolds.
Sunsets and sunrises highlight the beauty in the landscape.
Low morning and evening light helps to give texture to the landscape, modelling the scene so much better than summer sunshine.
Keep a look out for interesting shapes, lone trees, rolling hills and get out early or late to make the most of your photography project.
Having the ability to use a full size professional camera is greta.
Yet you can get equally great photographs using only a phone camera.
Landscape photography with phone camera and the use of post production in Snapseed to create a portfolio of creative impressionistic photography.
When Autumn is coming and you are out and about with your camera you will probably often feel that you can make something more of the image than what is right in front of you. You know that some careful post production can enhance the photographs. But what if you do not have access to a full suite of post production software such as Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom.
This is where creative decisions come in to play. Moreover the decision to use your phone. This is because they offer very immediate very simple to use post production app’s.
If you download Snapseed you will have great control over your images.
Make sure you pre visualise your shot.
This means when shooting the picture try to imagine exactly what it is you ant your final image to look like.
Consider lighting, angle, composition and again what you will do to the image in post production to give you your final result.
Also consider what the use of the image is going to be.
