Landscapes on a Dreary Day

January 15, 2020

     There are a lot of conventions to landscape photography  --  put the camera on a tripod, stop down, use focus stacking, make everything sharp across the frame, use long exposures, have foreground, mid-ground, background interest, etc., etc.  But the cardinal rule is: Make a pretty picture!  Can you make a pretty picture on a dreary day?  Here are some photos from along the Rivanna Trail  -- handheld, f/2.0, blurry backgrounds  --  of a muddy bare winter lanscape.


Gear Photos were made with a Nikon D750 and a Zeiss Milvus 35 mm f/2.
