Inspirational Landscape Photography

Started by Heinrich van Schalkwyk. Last reply by Hennie Pretorius Jan 13, 2012. 4 Replies

For many of us (if not most), capturing that 'beautiful landscape' is the reason for us buying a camera and probably what got us interested in photography in the first place... But as you begin to understand what you are doing and discovering the true potential of photography, suddenly it appears to not be that simple! You have a small window of oppoprtunity to capture that perfect scene, you cannot always control the light, and sometimes the scene in front of you just doesn't seem to offer…Continue

I will see if I can find anything on the Scout 12 mm Bernard...

And what do think of the Scout 12mm?
Comment by Danie Bester on April 25, 2011 at 11:28

Hi Bernard,


Difficult question... When doing landscapes, I will go for the control freak or the Composer, which means you can set the focus and shoot from a tripod. This is not possible with the Muse, or the Lensbaby 2, which I've got.


I also know that they've bring out the new "Sweet 35 Optic" where you can actually set the aperture on the lens without having to use aperture rings...

Hi Danie. What lensbaby would you recommend?
Comment by Danie Bester on April 18, 2011 at 23:54


I always attempt to shoot in both formats; Landscape and Portrait modes, which was indeed the case here. Both these shots are HDR ones and I used a polarizer to keep the glare out.

Hey Danie, looking forward to reading your article on landscape gear etc.

I'm just reading a book by Michael Freeman and there is a section on S-curves and how this composition tool can be so useful in a lot of circumstances, but for mostly landscape photography.

Comment by Rudolph Viljoen on April 18, 2011 at 8:18
Danie, these shots are very good. Please forward me the details of the compositions. I assume the coloured shot was in portrait or did you crop it? If it was taken in portrait, why? These questions for my own education.

I am working on a complete article about Landscape Photography Gear, sepcifically lenses and filters...

Hello everyone, yes i am also very glad we have a travel & landscape group!  Danie please can you give us a hint as to what lenses we will need for our Ghost Town  Photography Tour to Namibia next year?  If we start now,  we can save money not just for the trip but also for our lenses!

Comment by Bea Bornman on April 14, 2011 at 17:20

Could somebody please tell me if there is a difference between shooting underwater than in other conditions(such as shooting above water).  How does one settings change?

Thank you
