Choosing the Perfect Location:

One of the key elements of stunning landscape photography is choosing the right location. The Fraser Valley is a goldmine of picturesque landscapes, from rolling hills and lush forests to serene lakes and majestic mountains. But what makes a place perfect? Here are some tips:

  • Scouting: Before your shoot, scout the location. Visit at different times of the day to understand how light and shadows play on the landscape.
  • Seasonal Variety: Fraser Valley offers a unique beauty throughout the seasons. Don’t limit yourself to one season; explore the changes in nature’s colours and moods.

Optimizing Camera Settings:

Once you’ve found the perfect location, the next step is to optimize your camera settings. These settings will vary depending on your camera and the specific conditions, but here are some universal tips:

  • Aperture: Use a small aperture (high f-stop like f/8 or f/11) for a greater depth of field, ensuring both foreground and background are in focus.
  • Shutter Speed: Adjust your shutter speed to capture motion. A fast shutter is perfect for freezing fast-moving elements, while a slower one can create a sense of motion in water or clouds.

The Magic of Filters:

Filters are your best friends in landscape photography. They can help you control exposure, manage reflections, and enhance colours. Here are a few filters to consider:

  • Polarizing Filter: Reduce reflections and to improve colour saturation in the sky and water.
  • Neutral Density Filter: Use ND filters to slow down your shutter speed in bright conditions, allowing you to capture long exposures.
