Creating Dynamic Landscape Photographs

Join professional landscape photographer and author Tim Cooper for an information-packed lecture on landscape photography. This very popular photographic discipline requires practice, planning, and a solid grasp of the technical side of image making.

The Moose Cruise: A Three-Hour Photographic Tour Around Manhattan

This B&H video is like a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River. On second thought, it is a pleasant cruise down the Hudson River (then up the East River and around Manhattan), with photographer Moose Peterson and more than 400 photographers, as they all enjoy a beautiful day capturing the sights of the city—from the water.

Real Exposures, with Moose Peterson

In this video professional landscape, wildlife and aviation photographer, Moose Peterson, talks about what attracts him to photography and what he looks for when shooting. Later in the video he talks about equipment choices and how to choose the proper tools depending on your style of photographing.

Beyond the Snapshot: Fine Art Landscape Photography

In this video, landscape photographer Miles Morgan shares essential information and tips on how to create successful landscape photographs. Ranging from how to prepare for shooting to some post-production techniques, Morgan provides in-depth details about his process.

Cold-Weather Photography

Even though the leaves are down and your frost-laden lawn makes crunchy sounds when you cross it in the morning, that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack your cameras away until March or April; if you do, you’re going to miss some fine picture-taking opportunities.

Filters for Landscape Photography

With the exception of the filters used for black-and-white photography (see the article Black & White Landscape Photography) the numbers of filters used for capturing color landscapes are few, mostly due to the fact that, in digital imaging, many white balance and filter effects can be addressed in camera.

Black-and-White Landscape Photography

Though I was raised and grazed on film I have no qualms admitting I haven’t shot a roll of the stuff since August 2001 (with a Nikon N90 and Fujifilm Astia in case you’re curious). I appreciate film, respect film and certainly miss the disciplined aspects of shooting film, but at the end of the day I’m perfectly happy with digital imaging, warts and all. 

Photographing Seascapes

Seascapes are about sky, water, the physical dynamics of the points at which they meet, reflections and mirror imaging and most of all, the unique qualities of moisture-filtered light that one can only find where sky meets water.

The Mechanics of Panoramic Landscape Photography

Back in the early days of photography, panoramic photographs, which by definition are wide-field, unbroken sweeps of scenery, were captured using cameras with pivoting lens turrets that “painted” the image across a wide sheet of film as the lens rotated from left to right (or vice versa).

Mastering the HDR Landscape

Landscape photographers often find themselves in challenging light. If you're at all experienced with shooting landscapes, then you know that the best light happens in the hour or so right around sunrise and sunset. The so-called "golden hour" is when we get nice, warm light and excellent opportunities for side-lighting to bring out the texture in terrain. If you shoot right around sunrise and sunset, though, you'll also get the problem of too much dynamic range.
