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.
- 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.
