Widening Your Photography Repertoire to Wide Open Spaces

By on

Seen in person, certain landscapes physically take our breath away. The raw colors and the little details that can be perceived in a 360 live panorama are unbeatable. When you want to share that view it’s not so easy and many photos we see are less than awe-inspiring. Yet some photographers seem to capture the beauty in a way that transports us there, bringing us into the scene with them. This is not by accident.

Landscape photography, like so many other types of photography, takes a tuned eye and requires some special technique to make a photo stand out. Timing, lighting and composition all come into play, the basic photo taking elements, but applied to landscapes that are massive and complex the photos can so easily fall flat. 

Whether you’re already a decent photographer or you’re a budding talent, we found an article to “point you in the right direction” with your landscape photo taking. Don’t be overwhelmed by the equipment if you’re not at that point, there are many tips here to help the average traveler. The photos by Colby Brown of the Matador Network are sensational and will make you want to shoot for the stars – and at the mountain tops. 

With our release of the Nepal magazine issue with traveler experiences of trekking in the Himalayas, we thought landscape photography tips would be an ideal accompaniment. If you’re interested in the Himalayas you’ll love looking at how great photographers encapsulate all the depth and detail into a single image. Check out this article on the Matador Network by Kate Siobhan Havercroft: Basics of landscape photography.

Then hope over to the Digital Nomad app to follow travelers into Nepal and through the mountain trails of the Himalayas. Read the Nepal mag issue here.
