Introduced: Nature Photography

Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey – Photographer: Johan Lennartsson

 

A wide range of photography is covered by depicting nature in all varieties. It includes wildlife, landscapes, plants, phenomena and close-ups of details as well. There is no comprehensive definition of nature photography, it touches too many genres and opportunities to take pictures.

Some good advices to get the best results:

Dress accordingly! Hiking shoes and outdoor clothing will protect you better.

Use the rule of thirds, which will set a harmonious focus on your motive.

Get familiar with your camera settings to react quickly on changing situations.

Be patient.

Have fun and enjoy the surrounding nature!

Respect ethical concerns and do not stress or harm wildlife by getting to close. Do not overrun and destroy natural areas.

Introduced: street photography

Don´t walk

A special theme of photography is to take pictures in public places, mostly on streets and places. Henri Cartier-Bresson has been one of the famous specialists and master of street photography. He only took his beloved small camera, a Leica, and it is said that he could wait hours at a corner or place just to capture that one perfect situation.

Nowadays a lot people still like to take photos on the streets, catching scenes of life. So we suggest to take a look into our section of street photography and discover eye-catching documentaries of people and their environment.

Street photography not necessarily needs to include people. Also traces of human existence can tell a story of life.

Abstract Nature – looking into details

Our new Photo Challenge sets a focus on nature in detail – close enough to hide the origin.

Its very interesting, especially in macro photography, to focus on a part of our world, we do not recognize in normal life. You see the tree, but have you noticed the slender vains providing the leaf with power? You see the beach, but have you noticed the fine lines, the wind carves into the sand?

Look for the details in nature, get close to an abstract, but fascinating world as main motive and upload your photo to participate in our Photo Challenge.

Get inspired by your own creativity!
