DAVID’S TOP TIPS

Lancashire Life - - PHOTOGRAPH­Y -

Fully un­der­stand your cam­era, what it can do and how it works

If you want to shoot land­scapes, in­vest in a good tri­pod.

El­e­va­tion! Be­fore the tri­pod even comes out, think about the el­e­va­tion of the cam­era this is cru­cial to the fi­nal com­po­si­tion – just a cou­ple of inches up or down can make a mas­sive dif­fer­ence to land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy.

Fil­ters are not es­sen­tial but ex­cep­tion­ally use­ful and will im­prove land­scape fea­tures and ex­pand cre­ative op­tions. For sun­set and sun­rise, fil­ters re­ally help to bal­ance bright­ness. Re­mem­ber who you are tak­ing pictures for. Take the pictures that make YOU happy – some­thing that you could sit and just look at for an ex­tended pe­riod of time.

Make sure you have all you need to stay safe on the hills ie head torch and map!
