I’ve been noticing a few messages on Facebook and Twitter recently from people asking for peoples opinions on their photos. Are they too dark? Too light? Is the colour right? There is obviously a worry that their images will look out of place, particularly when entering an image into a competition. However, there is a simple answer to this drawn from my experience in the music recording industry. One of the gems of advice given to people making a final mix is to get some recordings from other artists from similar genres and to check to see if your recording would sit well in the mix. So the equivalent for photography is to go to the websites of some of the photographers that you respect, pick a few sample photographs of a similar style and check your image would sit well in a slideshow of them. Obviously, there is a bit of creative freedom to operate away from this ‘visual mean’, but it will certainly give some guidance and confidence that you’re not working miles away from normal.

Returning to Landscape Photography

It is often too easy to ignore the landscape we see around us every day. It is common to feel the need to travel to be inspired to photograph. Once out of our home surroundings we feel enthused by the unfamiliar and by a concept of the ‘other’ more
