Show Notes for Episode 21: Landscape Photography ft. Brian Call

 

Florida Bay Forever: A Story of Water from the Everglades to the Keys

You want to place yourself where lightning will strike.” – Brian Call

Brian advises that aspiring, new nature photographers get published. Start by donating and you will build up your body of work and you’ll have a working portfolio and gain recognition.

 

One of his favorite places to photograph is Fakahatchee Strand in Big Cypress.

 

Recommended Equipment:

  • Camera
  • Tripod (as good as you can afford)
  • Shutter release (electronic)
  • A wide angle is good, but you can use a zoom; it depends on what you want to photograph and how. Brian uses a 24mm crop frame.
  • Polarizer filters

 

While he does have Lightroom, Brian is a Photoshop guy.

 

The main mistake he sees is over sharpening images, as it changes the emphasis from the subject of the photo to the sharpness.

 

Follow your passion.” – Brian Call

Brian’s advice for landscape photography:

  • Research where you’re going!
  • Don’t rush out and expect to get the shots you’ve been wanting to get; sometimes it takes time to get to know a place, so go out several times.
  • When traveling, you can’t entirely plan out your shots, so you have to work by your instincts.
  • Be prepared to take shots at different time of day.
  • Know how to caupture the shots you want in different lighting situations.
  • Know if there are certain times of day that are the best for the shot you want.
