It is easy to find tips for any photography. There are no rules when it comes to nature. Here are some expert tips, but with an unconventional twist that embraces the wild.

Tip #1 – Get your exploring boots on and be prepared

If you are on a mission to document the beauty of nature and the wilderness, you should be prepared. While this is a time to explore and be spontaneous, it’s also a good time to learn more about the area. Keep your eyes open, be curious, but not too far! Your shooting experience will be more efficient if you prepare well in advance.

Google Maps is a great tool for location scouting if you don’t like surprises and wandering. Google Maps can be used to determine when the sun rises and sets to capture the Golden Hour. More information will follow.

Tip #2: Wide angle lenses? This is how it looks.

You will find this in almost any article on landscape photography tips. Do not conform to the rules. Make your own. Landscape photographers tend to use a wide-angle lens for most of their photos. However, you can take advantage of this opportunity and bring a longer lens or a closer lens to capture details in the distance.

Wide-angle lenses can sometimes blur parts of an image. Telephoto lenses will allow you to capture the perspective more naturally. You should consider all options, and not just one wide-angle lens.

Tip #3 – Go HDR-free

Post-processing is where you can really make your mark, so be careful when choosing your format. HDR is one of the options, but there are many other ways to make your photos stand out. HDR does not give you natural coloration and details. Focus your attention on the important things and shoot RAW.

Tip #4 – Perfect weather is not possible, so treat it like a professional

It is important to be prepared for any outcome. Let mother nature do her magic and trust her. You have to capture the beauty of each day, even if it is bad weather. Landscape photographers often calculate the ideal time to shoot to capture images in the sunlight. This level of perfection will not produce original works.

Are you feeling stormy? Perfect. The first tip has been accepted, so you are ready for anything. Stormy weather can make stunning landscape photos. But be cautious and do not put your equipment or yourself at risk.

Tip #5 – Find an unusual perspective

You won’t bring anything new if you go to an easily accessible place. It’s worth taking the time to explore a new viewpoint that no one has seen before. It is all about looking around and trying to find a unique viewpoint.

Tip #6 – Composition rules should not be broken

The rule of thirds is the most popular rule landscape photographers use. The Rule of Thirds says that you should use an invisible grid (3×3), and your focal points should touch the intersections. You should be familiar with the basic composition rules, but you can also expand your mind to show us something new.

Although most photographers prefer landscape mode for their photos, you should not rule out portrait. This is unusual, and we don’t often see them. You’ll be surprised by your audience. If you take all your images horizontally, using the rule of thirds or similar, you will have boring images. It would be best if you did not try to capture nature using rules.

Tip #7 – Drain the color

Photographers don’t often think in black-and-white when nature is the subject of their photos. Monochromatic shots are possible with stormy weather and large clouds against a blue sky. You might be surprised by the final results if you shoot in black and white.

Black and white can be limiting because it is difficult to get the colors back in editing. You don’t want to lose the great shot you have in black and white. Take a color copy just in case.
