Lighting matters less in landscapes than in other types of photographs.

Drawing water is a skill that almost every artist needs. If you paint landscapes, you’ll almost certainly want to include an ocean or lake, and even portraits and still lives should include glasses of water or swimming pools.
Water is also adaptable, evoking a wide range of emotions. It can take the form of a magnificent natural force, as in Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, or vast desolation, as in Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa, or wonder and mystery, as in John William Waterhouse’s Miranda.
Determine what’s happening on the water’s surface before drawing water as part of a landscape. Is it a calm sea with gentle waves, set against a cloudy sky? Is it a still lake with just the tiniest ripples? Is it a tumultuous sea? Note that your waterscape is still changing, regardless of its state.
Also the most tranquil and serene lake or ocean can have movement and play with light in some way. When you draw water, you’re often drawing the way light interacts with it. Alyssa Newman, an artist and illustrator, advises, “Know your light source and stick to it.” The sun or moon would normally be the light source on water, but it may also be the lights from a ship, city, or lighthouse. Keep in mind where the light is coming from, how bright it is, and how it bends and plays through the water’s surface.

It is easy to create good photographs of mountains because you can always tell how big they are

Users can come across words that are difficult to understand when browsing Commons pages about photography and photographs. This is especially true if the consumer has only rudimentary photographic expertise or is not an English native speaker. With the aid of pictures, this page aims to illustrate some of these words in simple English. If you come across a word that you don’t understand, please add it to the Suggestions for Words to Add to the List section at the bottom of this page. If you know what either of these words mean, please clarify it as simply as possible.
Drone cameras have a small sensor, so they don’t have the same resolution, noise performance, or dynamic range as DSLR cameras. Nonetheless, taking high-quality photographs is possible, particularly in bright light.
Aerial photography refers to photographs taken from any kind of aircraft. It’s a popular technique for photographing large landscapes or cityscapes, as well as single objects like buildings or bridges. Aerial photography can be the only way to capture useful images of such themes.

A prairie photograph with a winding path in it can help draw the viewer into the photograph.

Consider this image of a waterfront hotel on a summer evening with a crowded marina in the foreground. The coloured lights on the hotel’s exterior reflected off the cobalt blue water shortly after sunset, creating an energizing image.
Early in the morning, the water on a lake is always flat calm, allowing for a great reflection. Getting a perfect reflection is more difficult than it seems because even a slight breeze can cause ripples and distort the water’s surface.
You’ll have a greater chance of discovering still waters in the morning if you can find a lake in the mountains. If the first rays of the morning sun illuminate the peaks of the mountain, which are mirrored in the water, your shot would be even better.
Take a compass with you when you scout your place so you can find a subject in the west that will light up when the sun rises. Put some water between you and your subject, and you’ve got yourself a fantastic shot.
Breaking the rule of thirds and aiming for perfect symmetry in your picture is a good idea with the calm lake shot. Include the same amount of subject and reflection as the horizon line in the center of the picture.

What is included in a cityscape?

Photojournalism is a form of journalism that uses photographs to tell a story. It involves gathering, editing, and presenting news stories for publication or broadcast. While it is now commonly understood to refer only to still images, the word may also refer to video used in broadcast journalism in some situations. Photojournalism is differentiated from other closely related branches of photography (for example, documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photography, or celebrity photography) by adhering to a strict ethical code that requires the work to be both truthful and objective when telling the story in purely journalistic terms. Photojournalists produce images for the news media and assist communities in connecting with one another. Photojournalists must be well-informed and well-versed in the activities taking place right outside their gates. They present news in a unique way that is both informative and entertaining.
A photojournalist is a photographer in the same way as a writer is, but they must also make snap decisions and bring photographic equipment, even when facing major challenges (e.g., physical danger, weather, crowds, physical access).
