What is landscape photography?
HDR, aperture stacking, blending different photos, a sky here and a mountain there. The lines between fantasy and real landscape photography is getting more and more blurry.
Everyone wants to capture amazing photos, but lets face it, we need to stay true to our audience and to ourselves.
I admire the artists creating wonderful digital art and I think that is just fine as long as we are honest with that it might not be traditional photography. Me? I Try to get it as right as possible right there in the camera, I use filters, long exposures and I often visit a location multiple times to get the photos I want. Sure I do some sharpening, dust removal and the occasional color adjustment. But I always try to represent what I saw with my own eyes at the scene, never more. And should I do some blending or multiple exposure stuff I will always let the viewer know, hope you enjoy the photography here. If you do, leave me a note and let me know...
