South Africa is spoiled for choice when it comes to landscapes. We have dramatic mountains, wide open spaces, deserts you name it. Looking at it often takes our breath away but why is it that our photographs often don’t do it justice.
Our eyes give us a perfect perspective when surveying a landscape but unless we know what we are doing a photograph will give us a flat perspective which takes all the drama out of the image. Getting the right exposure can also be a challenge with over exposed skies a common problem. What we want to do is create an image that replicates the image that our eyes took in. That is where the skills and the right equipment kicks in.
Our featured image was taken by Hougaard Malan, winner of the Landscape Photograph of the Year in 2016.
