Scape for all sea­sons

NPhoto - - 15 Projects for 2015 -

The chang­ing of a land­scape can pro­vide a record of en­vi­ron­men­tal al­ter­ations and the evo­lu­tion of fo­liage across the year. Tak­ing the same land­scape shot in ev­ery sea­son pro­vides a fan­tas­tic visual im­pres­sion of this, as well as a worth­while and ul­ti­mately re­ward­ing chal­lenge for pho­tog­ra­phers.

Most set­tings can be al­tered to make the most of the con­di­tions, but al­ter­ing fo­cal length or point of fo­cus be­tween images can al­ter the com­po­si­tion, so after your first im­age is taken in spring, make a note of the fo­cal length and be sure to use the same lens. Mark­ing out your van­tage point may re­quire a tape mea­sure or a cus­tom GPS point on a smart­phone. Use your first photo as a ref­er­ence point, and be sure to in­clude trees and other per­ma­nent struc­tures to help when you’re re­fram­ing.
