First post in a long time....


I haven't been on blogger for a long time since I thought Wordpress would suite me better. 
It didn't, so I'm back on Blogger!
I also stopped blogging for a while, since I didn't had the time to blog.
But I'm back and I'll try to post a new post every friday starting next week.
So next friday around six o'clock there will be a new post here!

And because I haven't been around a long time, an extra post now.
Here it is:

How to improve your landscape photography

Lately I've been to Germany, Winterberg. The landscape there is absolutely amazing. Really stunning.
So I couldn't leave my camera in my bag, so I've taken a lot of photos.
Well actually not that much since we only stayed there for like three days.
I've got three tips for you that will make your landscapes better (unless you already know and use them):

Tell a story:

This don't have be obvious, very present in your picture. Just a clue to a story is enough so that the viewer can make a story up for him/herself. This does very heavily depend on you own style and ideas, but a good landscape does always tell something. This can vary from a real story to a short scentence or two (which can be a story). Like the saying goes: a picture can tell more than thousend words....

A story like: I'm free. Since the photo was taken on the outside.

A story like: live is a prison, but there are some ways to escape.

Take a tripod with you:

I've taken most photos without a tripod, but that's because we had to walk a long way. I can't show you an example of a good tripod-using photo for that reason. But it was a great walk and we even came home (after we had been walking for 4 hours in the forest) happily and dry.

Guide the viewer:

A photo is your world. Your creation. Nobody else know what you mean with it unless you tell them. 
That's the same with focal point. You have to guide the viewers eyes to through the photo, otherwise they will say that the picture is boring. People, especcially art viewers, love to be guided or atleast to be helped.

Like this road, it takes your eyes in the picture. 
I hope you enjoyed it, and I see you next time,
