9 creative photo ideas to try in April
04 Shoot quiet landscapes
For some photographers, a bleak spring day is the perfect time to make a beeline for the great outdoors.
German composer and fine-art nature photographer Jürgen Heckel appears to thrive on the sort of weather conditions that would drive most picture postcard snappers to the nearest café.
“I can’t really describe why I like these kind of colours in my work,” says Jürgen. “All I can say is that I don’t like flashy colours and too much contrast in my pictures.
“Most of the time, I think in advance what kind of picture I want to take, although I have to adapt to the weather on a particular day. I also think about the post-processing treatment I’m likely to use while shooting the pictures.”
Get started today…
* Travel light: Jürgen uses a 600D plus Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 and Sigma 17-70mm.
* If you’re having trouble composing for square images, use the overlays available in your camera’s Live View mode.
* Use low ISOs and a tripod to preserve image quality.
