Photography Tutorial Part 4
Part 4 – Landscape Specifics
And now, the tutorial for the specifics of shooting landscapes… The previous parts of this series can be found at the bottom of my journal.  By now you’ll know everything you need to about composition and other things, and these are guides to creating amazing landscapes.  I do go into a lot of detail here, but if you want to shoot landscapes properly, you need to know this.
Again, I’d just like to say: Please fav this article and post links in your journals, as this will help more people to see it!
Some equipment that can help:
1. Wide angle lens:
a. For a crop sensor, you can go as wide as 10mm.  Personally, I shoot with a Sigma 10-20mm. I have found it to be a great lens and is relatively cheap.
b. For a FF, there are lots of options.  I’ve seen great stuff at 24mm, and 16mm.
c. Generally speaking, the wider the better. Though it does depend upon your situation.
d. Some have to

Photography Tutorial Part 3
Part 3- Shooting RAW
Hey everyone! It’s time for the next instalment.  The previous parts of this series can be found at the bottom of my journal.  I hope you find this useful!
A quick correction from the last one: For the rule of thirds, split your image into 9 segments not 6. Sorry if I caused any confusion!
Again, I’d just like to say: Please fav this article and post links in your journals, as this will help more people to see it!
I’ve said before that if you can shoot RAW (or NEF) then you should. This is because capturing a RAW shot is like having a “digital negative”.  You’re effectively capturing more of what the cameras sensor picks up than you would in a JPEG.  This allows for more options during your post processing amongst other things.
I personally use Adobe Lightroom to sort and process my RAW’s.  There are other programs, but Lightroom does everything I need it to.
