Nature. This theme dominates my gallery and is my favourite type of photography. Mother nature is truly beautiful. It’s hard to not take a pretty photo as the subject is stunning to begin with and I want to share with you a couple of my tips when i go on a nature-driven shooting spree.
Tip One – Go WIDE for landscape!
When it comes to camera and lens choice, i often opt for something with a wide angle lens. Nature is beautiful, so you just want to fit as much in as possible. You need to cram every little bit of the breathtaking landscape into your photos! I love shooting with my sprocket rocket and with my latest purchase – the Lomography LC-Wide.
Tip Two – 360°
Sometimes, wide angle lens just can’t seem to satisfy my “I MUST CAPTURE EVERYTHING” mood and when that mood hits, I pick up my Lomography Spinner 360 and take panoramas!
Tip Three – Combining Slide Film with E6 Processing
Although I love XPRO, I’m beginning to enjoy putting my slide films through E6 processing, especially when my subject is nature! You can achieve unprecedented clarity with rich gradation and vivid colour! I’m still trying to achieve the perfect exposure that will result in high saturation and intense vibrancy. I really admire some of the amazing nature photographs that other Lomographers are achieving!
So these are just a few of my simple tips. Do you have any tips to share?
