Make Your Landscapes Really Pop!
Have you ever taken a photo of a stunning landscape only to find the image doesn't do what you're seeing - and feeling - any justice whatsoever?
There are a lot of techniques I could talk about, from use of gradient filters, to ensuring you shoot in morning light, to various composition techniques, that will make your landscapes pop - but there's one in particular that I love:
Over-saturation! When shooting with my Nikon D60, I love to pump up the colours to "vivid" or even "more vivid." Skies are electric blue, grass is eye-popping green, flowers seem surreal...
And it's usually a better representation of how the landscape made you FEEL, rather than photo-realism.
So whether you use your in-camera settings or pump up the colours in Photoshop afterwards, when shooting landscapes, don't be shy on the colour saturation!
