Scenic, Views & Nature Photography
Scenic photography is any photograph that contains a “scene” or “story” this can include the following: street scenes, gardens, swimming pools, forests, seascapes, beach scenes, and of course “landscape photography”. I love to find the "inherent art" found in nature and scenes, this can be abstract patterns and beautiful colours and balance.
Landscape photography was popular from as early as the early 1800s photographers were fond of this type of photograph as it took such a long time to expose the film and the scenery did not move, unlike a human subject for instance.
The formative exponents of this type of photography followed the same path as such great landscape artists as Constable and Turner and was referred to as pictorial photography
They were capturing a moment in time forever, one that would never be the same again.
