Camera Settings Every Landscape Photographer Should Know
One of the beautiful things about landscape photography is that your camera settings play two roles: providing technically correct exposure and, just as importantly, allowing you to render the frame as your creative mind sees fit. However, there are some camera settings you need to make sure you have, and if you’re new to the genre, this helpful video tutorial will let you know what they are and how to use them correctly.
Come to you from Photograph by Perea, this excellent video tutorial covers some of the most important camera settings that landscape photographers need to master. If you’re new to this, by far the most important thing you need to set immediately is the image type, which is to change it to raw instead of JPEG. Many cameras are set to JPEG by default, but raw files give you much more leeway in post-processing to make adjustments without a significant loss in image quality. This is especially important in landscape photography, as the extreme dynamic range of many scenes will often force you to demand a lot from your files during the editing process. Watch the video above for the full recap.
