Amongst photographers it is often debated whether man made structures, cities or coastal subjects are representative of landscape photography. Often times these subjects are categorized in different genres, such as Seascape Photography and Cityscape Photography. From a technical standpoint, there is validity to this argument in that landscape photography is a sub genre of Nature photography and man made structures are not natural.
Images and photographs can be a great source of inspiration and there are many different styles of photography, all can be a great source of inspiration at home or in the office. Two of the more inspiring forms of photography are Landscape Photography and Seascape Photography.
Decorating with Landscape Photography can be a great choice for a multitude of reasons. One reason I like is subject matter. You can choose from so many different scenes in Landscape Photography and people will understand the scene and the subject immediately. If they don’t, then you can explain why you enjoy this location and why you choose to display it.
New York City is a very popular city to shoot for Landscape Photographers because it is a place where great man made objects intertwine with nature in a curious sometimes strident dichotomy of existence. This makes for stark contrasts and rich texture, which always makes great art and photography.
Just like in Landscape Photography, consider your use of the foreground in a scene. You can use foreground for scale or to add interest to the image. Always look for interesting object like rocks and rock formations on the beach. You want to find objects that can lead the viewers eye to the subject.
Deserts are a great subject for Landscape Photography. No two deserts are alike, they all posses unique qualities and characteristics. Showing these unique qualities is the job of the photographer.
In Landscape Photography it is very important to catch the emotion and energy of the moving water in your composition. Obviously fast moving rapids are going to convey a different energy than a slow moving river. You will need to decide how you want to add that emotion and energy to your composition.
How many times has this happened? You are out on a scenic drive, you pull over to capture what seems like the most spectacular Landscape Photography view. Later when you are home reviewing the days photographs, you find that the photos are not so spectacular, in fact they are down right boring.
