Including man-made objects in our landscape photographs is sometimes quite challenging! I personally find it to be one of the hardest things to do well in this genre of photography; however, today's guest on my podcast, Michael Blanchette, has mastered it.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- How Michael transitioned from his career in software engineering to landscape photography.
- Michael's proclivity for including "the hand of man" in his landscape photographs.
- Michael's approach for including man-made objects in his photographs.
- What Michael loves most about landscape photography.
- Michael's approaches to planning his photography shoots.
- The tools that Michael uses to maximize his success as a photographer.
- The pros and cons of social media and how it has changed over the years for Michael.
- Michael's thoughts on compositing.
- And a lot more!
