Finding actionable tips to improve our nature and landscape photography can often be hard to come by in today's noisy environment where catchy and click-bait titles on YouTube dominate the day; however, there are still ways to find these tips. A great place to find them of course is right here on the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!
This week I had a wonderful time chatting with long-time photographer Hank Erdmann, who shared with us some great tips for finding compositions in nature that might not seem obvious.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- How Hank got into photography,
- Hank's process for finding images through the use of the five senses,
- Using artistic sensory perception to create better photographs,
- Practical tips for people that say they are not artistic,
- A discussion on "what is art" in photography,
- Defining art,
- The differences between representative photographs and artistic photographs,
- Hank's role with NANPA,
- And a lot more!
