2018 Otownfun Featured Photo of the Quarter – Fall

PhotoTipSeriesGraphicsPhoto taken by Photojournalist Nathan Wertheimer

This photo was taken on assignment at the Royal Caribbean private compound in Labadee, Haiti. The image depicts a combination of landscape and architecture. This photo was taken in August 2018.

While on this assignment, I was photographing with my Nikon D7200 camera with a 12-24mm wide-angle f4 lens. I had my camera set on aperture at F16 and ISO 1000. The focal length was at 17mm. Then I adjusted the shutter speed accordingly. No flash was required on this image. Typically, when photographing a landscape there is no flash required. It is best to use the available light to capture the scene. Too much flash destroys the light areas in the image. Don’t forget to bracket your images with various shutter speeds.

Many people are curious how can I get a dark blue sky in my landscape photos. Basically, one needs to bump up the ISO up, shoot very fast in the area of 1000-5000 of per second. The sun should be behind you and one should end up with the same results.

​Overall, this type of photography could be fine arts or commercial landscape. If you like landscape photography, then get out in the field. Practice, Practice, and Practice experimenting with your camera taking good images. Good Luck in your photography.
