The WOW factor in Landscape Photography

When it comes to photography, I am a generalist. I like capturing photographs of a variety of subjects such as insects, interesting buildings, unusual signs and landscapes. There are others as well, but I must say that my favorite is landscapes.

What makes landscape photography most challenging, at least for me, is that we can be in a “wow” place and it is hard to capture the essence of what it is that we are seeing that forces us to say “wow!” The human eye can see much more than a camera and we tend to take in the colors, lighting, broad composition and put it all together in the mind’s eye to achieve that Oh-My-God feeling.

One of the photographers I follow, Erik Wahlstrom, has created an insightful video (below) which may cause us to rethink what is included in the landscape genre. He also uses one of my favorite Ansel Adams quotes about landscape photography. I have certainly felt the sting of disappointment amidst my landscape photography efforts.

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often the supreme disappointment.” – Ansel Adams
