The key to a great landscape photo is having visual impact that makes the viewer say “WOW.”
The question is, how do you do that?
There are tons of different ways that you can enhance the look of your landscape photos. Below, I outline three of my favorites.
Wide-Angles are Great, but Not the Only Option
Part of taking your landscape photos to the next level is experimenting with different gear, getting out of your comfort zone, and seeing landscapes through a different lens – no pun intended.
Though most landscape images you shoot will likely be with a wide-angle lens, it’s certainly not the only option available to you.
In fact, I enjoy shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens quite a lot because the longer focal length offers such a completely different view of the landscape than a wide-angle lens.
As you can see above, there’s a much greater intimacy to the shot when you frame all the extraneous features out of the image.
