Dear Catherine, thanks so much

or coming over to the club and share your knowledge, we

really appreciate your time and effort!

A few general tips from Catherine for better wide-angle/landscape photography:

  • Framing – It sounds obvious but it’s really important with landscape photography to make sure you frame the subject matter correctly before you release the shutter. There’s only so much you can do in photoshop after. The same goes for exposure.
  • People – Think carefully about how people interact with the landscape you’ve chosen to photograph and what they might bring to the composition (e.g. movement, sense of scale, focal point) and be decisive. Make sure any people in your image appear intentionally or not at all.
  • Focal point – This might seem counter intuitive when you’re working with a wide-lens but if you’re photographing people or on the streets try using a smaller depth of field as this will enable you to draw out a focal point.

Also, we would like to thanks the venue Cultural Club Gallery
