Landscape photography is one of the oldest and most practiced types of photography. I think that the saying every picture has a story to tell is so true. My task is to seek out that story creating photographs of natural landmarks, stunning vistas and interesting locations.
A landscape can include other things like rivers, lakes, or oceans. You can also include unnatural features like buildings and roads. Objects like these can serve as points of interest to make your landscape more engaging.
I feel that Landscape photos can include human interest to draw the viewer into the story. But they should not be the primary focus. Landscape photography only includes people as part of a wider scene. Humans and animals can bring life to a landscape. And they help the viewer understand the scale.
