Intimate Landscape Photography Tips

p the horizon
My definition of an intimate landscape image is one that lacks the horizon. I usually look more down than up when I search for motifs. By skipping the horizon you get some abstraction in to the image as it is harder to understand the size of the subject without it. I usually don’t include any sky at all in my intimate landscape images. - See more at: http://www.ianplant.com/blog/2013/08/21/5-tips-for-better-intimate-landscapes/#sthash.rgoGEXWg.dpuf

Photo Tip #1: Photograph with mid to long focal lengths as those lenses allow us to create calmer compositions and exclude the horizon. The focus should solely be on the landscape in front of us.

Photo Tip #2: Photographing at overcast light is often best suited as the giant natural soft box avoids harsh contrast and creates better image detail.

Photo Tip #3: Avoid any distracting elements from intruding into the picture. Move around and explore different perspectives and angels to eliminate distractions.

Photo Tip #4: Look for interesting and eye catching shapes, forms, colors, pattern and texture that pull and keep a viewer glued to the photography image and its composition.
