  • My landscape pictures always seem a little lifeless. Can anyone suggest a way to give them more impact? 06-28-2016
  • Have you tried shooting with a "normal" lens? (50mm for a full-frame or 35mm for a crop-sensor) I find using my 50mm gives the photo a better sense of what I liked about a scene. 06-28-2016
  • Try changing up your point of view. Get down really low or up higher. Eye-level shots can be boring. 06-28-2016
  • My advice would be to always look for a subject. Even a straight scenic shot should have a point of interest. Look for something that catches your eye and place it so that it pulls your viewers into the shot. 06-28-2016
