Outdoor lighting can be challenging, but Craftsy member Huntergl managed to get it just right in this image from his collection “Variations in Landscape.” Variations in Landscape: Scene Along a Riverbank

Featured member photo: scenes along a riverbank

Taken using an Olympus E-3 with a 12-60mm lens (a Canon 6D with A24-105mm was used for the other shots in the collection), this photo’s lighting and composition are spot on. The river bank is captured perfectly with a leading line that guides the viewer’s eye deeper into the photo, adding both depth and visual interest. Be sure to check out Huntergl’s entire collection “Variations in Landscape” here. Shot as a part of the Craftsy class Landscape Photography: Shooting from Dawn to Dusk, this image demonstrates how instructor Rick Sammon teaches students the technical and artistic skills necessary for creating captivating landscape photos.
