Landscape photography is my passion. The way I see it, I am an artist who has chosen a digital camera and some software as my tools. And there are some great tools available at the moment. The Nikon D800 and D600, Canon 5D Mark 3 and D6, Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6, just to name a few.
Of course these are all top end products, although some are not necessarily expensive. Do you really need them to produce fine art landscape images?
Not really, but if you can afford it, then get them. All the equipment in the world won't help you if you are not a good photographer. However if you do have a natural eye then get the best you can afford. Sell the kids if you have to!
There are really only two things you need to consistantly do. Sounds easy, doesn't it? If only it were......
Of course there are other factors to consider! I will also show you;
This image was created with a mid-range digital camera and an ultra wide angle lens. I am proud to say it won first prize at a photo competition!
