What the Heck Would Be The Reason of Landscape Photography?
What's the aim of landscape photography? For me it's an amazing query; anyone can can be found in Mother Nature, and experiences these locations. The aim cannot be simply to record a memory, or provide individuals who have yet to see it the impression of having been there. Anyone could do that with their cell phone. No image could actually catch the magnificence of Zion, or the stately wonders Yellowstone. And surely superb landscape pictures are caught at locals that were quite meager. Ian Ruhter is on a project to catch astounding landscape photographs in the Skid Row of Los Angeles. I've observed astonishing graphics of snowstorms in North Dakota (no disrespect intended to the outstanding individuals of Northern Dakota). So, there has to be something larger to acquiring an excellent landscape image than just amazing scene.

I'm blessed, I live in Lake Tahoe. I'm a few hundred miles north of Yosemite and only west of the Great Basin that is impressive. I definitely have no deficiency of amazing landscapes, and earn a great living by selling the photos that I create. However, most of the pictures that I see from my buddies, those call themselves photographers, or visitors, do not have that fire that would make some one want to purchase it. When a setting he desired to photograph was looked upon by Ansel Adams, he didn't look at it as it existed, but instead as how he could recreate it as a print. Was there too much contrast from the highlights to the shadows? He understood how to compensate for that. Was the sky too light? He knew how to bring it back in the final print. He was not merely taking images as he saw them, but instead he was creating art in the manner the scene was seen by his mind.
The photographer crafts his image to be the way it is seen by his mind. Otherwise what is the point of being a true photographer? Anyone with a camera, which is everyone these days, can snap images. F8 and be there is not enough and really it never was. Great photographers create art; the camera is their brush, light is their paint, pixels or film is their canvas, the scene in front of them is their subject.
In some sense, painters and other visual artists have it much more straightforward. A painter has his imagination to express the emotions he wants to communicate and a blank slate, but the Landscape Photographer has to cope with all the life that is real. We have to use what we see, in the way that we see them to express our emotions, for if things fit and cut into our image, can no longer call ourselves photographers.

So how does a landscape photographer craft an image if he must catch the planet as he sees it? We've got a number of resources to use to shape what we see: We can change our lenses, as well as the perspectives that we shoot; we can use film, because each type has different features; what paper we print on, we can alter tonal values, or add filters. Those are just a few of the high number of alternatives we can use to affect the image and handle the final print. We're only confined by our perspective and our fashion.
So, why landscape photography? Because it's but one of the very complex fashions there's. Getting beyond merely snapping pictures of a nice lake or rock or bloom, and getting into truly expressing emotions is a huge measure that includes much forethought, preparation, and really seeing the world differently. That is your job as a landscape photographer. Go see the world different, go show the emotions to them that everyone else missed.
