Landscape photography is often all about using small apertures and relatively long shutter speeds in low light, so stabilization is essential. More than any other type of photography, landscape photography requires the greatest attention to the direction, intensity, and color of the available natural light
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ current Occupational Outlook Handbook, the job outlook for photographers is 8 percent decline through 2026, which is slower than average for all occupations.
Real Career Impact
Employment of self-employed photographers is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026. Demand for portrait photographers will remain as people continue to want new portraits. Declines in the newspaper industry will reduce demand for news photographers to provide still images for print. Photographers have a talent or natural ability for taking good photos, and this talent is typically cultivated over years of practice. Photographers often start working as an assistant to a professional photographer, learning on the job. In addition, photographers must be trained on how to use picture-editing software.

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY – A Beginner’s Course
Frozen Image: Inspiration, Creativity & Knowledge
LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY though difficult to master can be an interesting subject because it involves creativity and technical skills. Some may easily grasp the technicalities involved while others may be proficient in the post-processing part of the job. Some have a flair for creativity whereas some may be good at the technical thought process. You may find some tools to help you improve your photography development.
A landscape photographer’s journey is often non-linear. The pathway for a skilled photographer is not always direct. You are likely to move forward and backward between the following four different categories.
- LEARN TO SHOOT: Starting with a minimum of a camera, a normal zoom lens ( 24 – 70mm) and a tripod you may start your journey as a photographer. More tools will be required later to make aesthetic and better photographs. The role of light, terrain, and weather is also important in photography.
Exposure compensation, Shutter priority, Manual exposure, Histogram reading – are some of the skills one has to develop. Confidence in Bracketing allows you to capture the entire dynamic range of the scene you’re trying to shoot. A common struggle for both new and experienced photographers is to get an image sharply in focus. Placing your camera in tracking mode to capture moving objects and how to use focus stacking for macro-photography and wide-angle shots will be taught later. As a landscape photographer, one must be able to recognize a variety of light conditions you may come across. Hence you’ll have to work with Light Learning Track – lens, filters, and light. Research & Planning will also have to be carried out in your interest in becoming a successful photographer. One has to plan his location shooting. Besides seasonal changes, one has to cater to the unpredictable nature. So one has to be highly flexible.
- DEVELOP CREATIVITY: Landscape photography basically is all about determining and developing your workflow. The solid workflow requires photography skills – technical know-how, compositional strategies, and post-processing ability. Creativity which has no limitations is very important. Technology may provide new gadgets and software, but what is primarily is one’s own creative process. Defining one’s own point of interest is the key to creating an impact in the minds of the viewers. What to include and what not to include in the process of creating a mood, by using colors effectively is the essence of photography composition. Always bear in mind while creating an Impact Learning Track – the rules of composition alone doesn’t guarantee one’s photographic success. Perception is what gives you a brand and how people see your images and makes you stand out from your competitors in the long run.
- MASTER POST-PROCESSING: Digital photography and computers have brought post-processing within reach of many. Mastering post-processing offers unlimited potential to make alterations and supplement the limitations of the camera. Artistic processing techniques help to focus on texture, forms or shapes of images. Converting to Black& White instead of color, helps photography to re-instate one’s mood or feelings. How you manage your images after they’re shot is important. They should be stored as JPG, RAW and also from smartphones or point-and-shoot camera. Different file types are available for storage. Backing your images on a CD, Flash drive or Hard drive or on cloud service is possible. Advanced Processing Learning Track helps in blending with light and working with color. Photoshop enriches landscape photography.
- READY TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL: All photographers study photography, not with the aim of making money. Some want to pursue photography as a business and become a Pro.
