Improving Your Nature Photography Through the Use of the Five Senses
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!
