When animals are a part of the landscape

Postby Didereaux » Fri Apr 21, 2017 4:33 pm

Landscape shots do not preclude the use of animals in them. In fact many times both animal shots and landscapes are the better for having them as a part of it. One of the world's most successful nature.animal photogrers shoots just that type of shot. The Tetons in the distance river, meadow, and maybe a moose out in there, or an eagle in one corner of the sky(Tom Manglesen). Portraits are fine, but they are boring and its even worse now that so many people think they are wildlife photographers when shooting closeups of gorillas in a zoo, or trained animals at a photography game farm. Look for the animal, then place it in its environment for the viewer to see. And likewise find your landscape and see if something live is in there to enhance it.
There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.
