• Atmospheric Landscape Photos with Erin Babnik

    August 1, 2019

    LOOK FOR LAYERS 
    When atmosphere gets down in between the layers of the landscape, it shows off the distances between them and that itself can make for a very compelling image.

    BE PATIENT 
    Wait it out sometimes! Atmosphere tends to come in waves, and it may well be that if you really like forms of your composition, wait for the next wave. It could bring something even better than you’ve already seen.

    LOOK FOR STRUCTURE
    Some types of atmospheres, especially low clouds, can often form into very sculptural elements that add shape to your compositions. Look for those and look out for the ways in which they interact with the rest of the environment.

    THINK FAST 
    Atmosphere can really change an environment as it moves through an area. Sometimes the layers change giving different levels of visibility and sometimes the structure changes. In either case, you may want to adjust the composition, so be ready to think quickly and adjust frequently.

    LOOK FOR INTERACTION 
    Sometimes atmosphere has a way of intermingling with mountain peaks or trees or elements in your frame in a way that tells a story that wouldn’t be there otherwise. Keep your eye open for such opportunities and ask yourself what that interaction means for you. Try to tell a story with your image.
