So that's how it's done! For a moment, I was wondering how Scott Kelby actually managed to churn out those color-rich, tone gradient landscape of Tuscany from his Nikon D5000. Its actually shot with the following conditions met
- Shoot all landscape at either dawn or dusk time window
- Shoot with F/11 upwards
- Use a Tiffen ND Gradient card filter in front of the lens when shooting
- Use a tripod. No handheld photography allowed
Lastly, a good composition eye is still required...that, is what none of us can help you with.
