Nature Photography tips : Shooting with your Horizon Camera!

2013-03-21 15

Nature photography? I enjoyed it very much, I saw it on TV, blogs and books. I’m writing this just to share my little experience shooting nature and to be specific, I only use Horizon camera on this Tipster. Why just Horizon Because I realized that I only shoot nature using this swinging panoramic camera. Here’s my simple tips on how to shoot the nature with horizon camera! Go panorama!!

Hello sun!

1. Get Ready!

Get ready here means that you have to prepare camera, films, and everything. Make sure your camera is ready to use, we don’t want you to struggle when there’s a beautiful sunrise is in front of you so make sure again that your horizon camera is working super fine!

2. Choose your weapon!

Horizon Perfekt is my choice of weapon so I can control everything but I couldn’t do MX like Horizon Kompakt. So Horizon Kompakt user can do MX while shooting nature! Ah that would be so much fun!

3. Choose your film!

Could it be color negative film, black and white film, slide film, or maybe redscale. It’s up to you! I love using slide film, it’s my favorite choice especially bright slide films like Fuji Sensia 100 or Lomography X Tungsten. I will leave this to your taste.

4. Compose your image!

Sounds so cliche right? but to make the most out of your Horizon camera, is just composing your image just a little bit, see the panoramic view inside your viewfinder, and if it feels right, press the shutter and bzzzzzzzzhhttt! One fine panorama image ready! and try shoot with the horizon vertically too! Prepare for some happy surprises!

    Extra tip: you can shoot MX with the Horizon Perfekt!
    1. take a picture
    2. don't advance yet
    3. push the little rewind button on the bottom of the camera and hold it
    4. advance your film (it won't actually advance, but it will make your camera ready to shoot again)
    5. Let go of the rewind button
    6. Take another picture……
