Melbourne-based photographer Jake Jalsovec has explored many different genres of photography but specialises from shooting various subjects within the studio space. Using various lighting techniques, he is able to explore various styles throughout his work, transcribing the beauty of his subjects in dramatic lighting. Through his thought process, Jake is able to achieve a high-quality standard of work no matter if it's in the studio or taking photographs in other styles or scenery.
Today we will be shooting Landscape style photos along the coast line of Cape Schanck, seeing the light house, surrounding cliff face and coast with ocean and a stunning background view.
Settings: maximise the depth of field / use a narrow aperture. May need to take shutter speed down and ISO up a little.
Finding a spot that has a foreground and background interest. Think carefully about where you place your camera and tripod.
Take your time. Thereís no need to take hundreds of shots at this session, itís all about taking the time to see and record the landscape around you.
What is the sky doing? If itís bland and no contrast, then donít let it dominate your frame. It is always good to have a slice of sky so that it can help Ďbreak upí the composition in a good way - think rule of thirds.
Keep an eye on the horizon! Keep them level and watch where you are placing them in the frame - on one of the thirds is best.
