Landscape photography can take on many forms, from the massive and majestic to the park around the corner. Although many landscape photographers focus on nature, there are those who focus on man made features as well. It’s also interesting to see how man made structures accent or detract from the environment around them.
Many genres of photography overlap, and landscape photography is one that fits in with almost every other genre. No matter what the subject of the photograph is, it takes place at a specific location. It’s hard to photograph sports, travel, architecture, and even some portraits without taking in the surrounding landscape.
