Developing Your Eye II, Day Six: “Landscape”

My submission for Day Six themed “Landscape” is my cityscape of George Town at sunrise (missing the sun) taken from Penang Hill.

This is my second submission of the seascape taken in 2013 at the Jeju Island of Korea. Hope you all like the two photographs taken locally and overseas.

Day Six: “Landscape” — Crop Your Image

Today, let’s walk in the footsteps of masters like Ansel Adams and focus on landscape photography.

Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can also capture a sweeping panorama of a city.

Today, take a picture of a landscape. Focus on the gestalt — the entire setting as a whole, like the shot above of the English countryside in Kent — rather than a specific subject or focal point within the scene. The setting itself is the star.

Today’s Tip: You may have trained your eye to crop your photo while viewing it “in camera.” But if not, crop your landscape photo once it’s uploaded onto your computer, using a free image editor like PicMonkey or Pixlr.

 Day Five: “Connect” — Tag Your Photo

In this age of social media, we hear the word connect often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever.

 

Day 5 - Connect

Day 5 – Connect

There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

Today’s Tip: Add relevant tags to your post, like “photography.” The image above could also be tagged with “bridge” and “San Francisco.” Tags group your related posts together, help to organize your site content, and tell readers what a post is about. Tags also make it easier for others to find your latest posts in the Reader.

Visit the resource page for details on tagging. Don’t forget to tag your post with#developingyoureye and check the Reader to see posts from fellow course participants!

Developing Your Eye, Day Three: “Water”   Leave a comment

Developing Your Eye, Day Three: “Water”

In my this submission, I am concentrating on Water Sports like the Dragon Boat Races that took place at our Teluk Bahang Dam, Penang. There are the portrait version (slightly out-of-focus) and the landscape version of the same Dragon Boat Race team. I take my photographs mostly in landscape versions and framing due to the easier positioning of my camera.

Developing Your Eye, Day Three: “Water”.  The portrait version of the Dragon Boat Team is equally as good as the landscape except that I have no clearer focussed photograph.

Developing Your Eye, Day Three: “Water”. The landscape version might to some looked better but in the final analysis, barring the clarity, I loved both versions.

 


Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

We all have stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it symbolizes a place we’ve left behind, or one we dream of visiting.

Here are the bright blue waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, at the site of a shipwreck off the coast of Bermuda:

How will you interpret today’s theme?

Today’s Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. Which way works better?

Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Landscape

    The Mangrove Swamps at Sunset

This was taken of the adjacent mangrove swamps at Bukit Tambun at sunset. We were enjoying the seafood at this small fishing village after a day’s trip to Ipoh for photo-shooting and eating pleasures. Ipoh is well-known like George Town, Penang for the delicious food too.

After roadtripping through Utah’s surreal geological landscape last year, I bought a US National Parks pass and vowed to explore more of North America’s parks. There’s just so much to see.

On a recent hike up Ryan Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park, I saw panoramic views of Southern California’s desert dotted with Joshua trees, rocky formations, and mountains far off in the distance:

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting. Landscape photography is typically displayed in a horizontal orientation; before getting started, read photographer Jeff Sinon’s tips on composition and finding the best shot.

For inspiration, browse our editors’ picks in the landscape category of Discover.
