On location / Framing your world
1 The scene
The lake is flanked with trees that perch out over the water. Finding an angle to include them will help to give the photograph context.
2 The weather
Check the weather beforehand. If you want to shoot a bright, sunny day, like we did, you should plan your trip around the forecast.
You’ll need a tripod to keep everything steady and sharp. Level off the legs so that the head is balanced and level before shooting.
4 Nikon DSLR
Our D750 has 24.3 megapixels and picks up great detail in the highlights and shadows, which makes it a great body for shooting landscapes with.
