Landscape Photography at Dusk

Photography allows you to capture moments that are otherwise fleeting. It teaches you to appreciate sunrise, sunset and to observe everything around you in different perspectives. Since taking it as a course and then a hobby, I’m finally starting to get pretty good.

The more you practice using the camera, the more comfortable and confident you become. After learning about the three most important settings (ISO, shutter speed and aperture), I have begun to change them at a quicker and more instinctive pace. I’m currently obsessed with trying different focal points.

As for my equipment, I’m using a Lumix G1. I have two lenses: a 14-45mm and 45-200mm. It’s been on the market for a few years and is a really great camera. To begin with, it’s easy to use and hold. Its lightweight and has a viewfinder, which I prefer to use. There is an LCD screen that can rotate which is also helpful when taking photos from high or low angles.

These are some landscape photos I took in Veneto and Verona. Sunsets (and sunrises)  are natures gift; we shouldn’t miss out on too many of them. The colours around me were constantly changing, so I had to adapt the shots, lenses and settings rapidly. You can see the progression in the shots below.

Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂

  1. We’ve been toying with fully abandoning the digital camera in favor of the phone camera. There is expected to be new phones coming out with optical zoom capabilities. Supposedly able to match the digital SLRs in some ways, we are looking forward to testing them out
