Landscape | Landscape Photography by Craig Fouché Photography
L andscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscapes typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. When I am photographing a landscape, my mind set is different to that of the other genres I photograph. I love to be in awe of Nature’s biggest spectacles and other worldly phenomena like the Milky Way, experience extreme weather and remote places. Once in tune, I am able to capture images beyond what I even imagined.
Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature devoid of human influence, instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. As with most forms of art, the definition of a landscape photograph is broad, and may include urban settings, industrial areas, and nature photography. It may sometimes be necessary to include the human element in a landscape image to depict the sheer size and proportion of the subject photographed, an example would be someone on a cliff edge overlooking the valley below.
Landscapes also include the following categories:
You will see that I have created pages specifically for these categories, and have kept Film, Monochrome and Travel Photography as a separate pages in the main menu, even although there may well be some amazing landscapes depicted there.
