Landscape Photography

Whether you live in the country or the city, the Lumix G cameras are perfect for capturing your chosen landscapes. Yes, there are some fantastic landscapes in Scotland or the Lake District, but if you live in a flat part of the country like I do, don’t let this limit your creativity. Landscape can be defined in many ways. It could be rolling fields with wild flowers, flowing water, the sea splashing onto the shore, inner city parks at dusk ‘til dawn with the sun creating long shadows, shafts of light across the ground or early morning people jogging or rushing to work.  The choice is endless.

As I live in the country, I decided to shoot a poppy field I discovered whilst driving to see a client in Cambridge. Whatever you decide to shoot, be imaginative and be creative with your photography. You’ll be surprised how much good stuff there is to shoot on your doorstep.

    Hi All,
    If you’ve visited : http://www.lumixlifestyle.co.uk/login/?action=lostpassword and tried to get a new password sent to you again (following trying the reset password) and this still hasn’t worked then I suspect this maybe a caching issue. To clear your cache in Internet Explorer you will need to go to Tools, Internet Options, Delete Browsing History, make sure Cookies is ticked then hit delete, close down Internet Explorer and restart.

    Please email me at enquiries@lumixlifestyle.co.uk if issues persist.

    Hi, I just realised you were referring to the Landscape (The Great Outdoors) video tutorial link above. This was a broken link and has now been fixed.

    Hi All
    I m new in the forum and having interest in landscape photography. Is it necessary to use graduated filter to retain clouds.
    Is there any tip to retains clouds without using grad.

    Hi SMJ I often use a grad filter to darken the sky it’s one of the easiest ways to balance the
    difference between the foreground exposure & the sky exposure..Try using A G1 or G2 from Cokin.

    If you have access to “Photoshop” you could achieve detail in the sky.
    The best way is to shoot your landscape using a locked off camera position/on a tripod.
    Shoot a an exposure for the sky(Highlight) an exposure for the foeground(Mid Tone)
    & possibly one for the shadows.You then put them into “Layers” in photoshop & basically
    combine the elements into one finished shot.

    As I don’t want to get into a photoshop tutorial I hope this helps.

    Thanks

    When using a tripod should I always turn off the image stabiliser?
