New year, new project – Landscape 52

Well here we are in 2011. Photographically speaking things will not be slowing down now that I have successfully completed my 365 Photo Journey Project. This year with the support of the new site sponsor, I will be taking on a Landscape 52 Project that is all about giving back to you guys.

Day 363 - Sun at last

Canon 40D @17mm, f13, 1/15sec with a Tiffen 0.6 Hard Grad plate filter.

Basically the aim of the project is to take at least 1 landscape image per week for 52 weeks. Each week on a Tuesday I will upload the image from the previous week and accompanying it will be a landscape photography tip related to the image. Some of key components I hope to cover over the year will be:

  • How to use filters
  • What to look for when composing your landscape shot
  • Tips of Post Processing
  • Researching your location
  • Tools of the trade
  • How to use your camera in manual mode

Video is going to play a large part in the project as I plan on recording some of my post processing to give you an insight into my workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop. Other videos will explain how I have researched the location and I will then take you on location to see how I compose and shoot the final image.

I’m also very happy to announce that we have a new sponsor for the project with coming on board for 2011.  If you are after some quality filters check out Greg’s Tiffen range and whilst your there he has a great range of tripods and accessories at very attractive prices.

Once again if you have any questions you want answered about landscape photography just shoot me a message via the contact page and I will do my best to answer them.
