Optimum Landscape Photography Technique
Autumn is approaching, and Mother Nature is going to add so many colours into the landscape. Landscape photography is one of the most popular photography genres. However, many photographers may not be aware of an effortless technique that improves the pictures.
Many digital cameras record more details in shadows than highlights. Therefore, CLIPPING the highlights can happen quite often in Landscape Photography
How Does Clipping Highlights happen in Landscape Photography?
Clipping the highlights means that there were more details in highlights and the camera was not able to capture them. Here is an example:
As you can soo in the above photo, there was lots of information on the sky, but the camera couldn’t capture it. Therefore, I took another shot and tried to capture the Highlights.
The overall exposure looks dark. Therefore, Shadows Clipped the time. However, after a little post-processing in Lightroom, I could restore the data in shadows. Here is the edited version.
In the below picture, there is almost no information in the foreground (Shadow).
Shooting for Highlights
Quick editing in Lightroom brought back the details in shadows.
In Landscape Photography, it is always an excellent approach to shoot for Highlights and edit for the Shadows.
In our Lightroom Training Program, I cover many editing techniques and restoring Highlights and Shadows is one of the many methods.
