Landscape (Three Photographs)

A long time ago when I was a kid, I was in a museum looking at paintings. It was a big museum and I was bored. Someone looking at a vast landscape of a shoreline looked down at me and said “wouldn’t you like to be there?” Every since, it comes to mind when I work on landscapes. For me it’s the litmus test, of a good landscape.

  2. Depending on the landscape painting you were looking at it might be a real challenge to find a scene in the present with as much majesty. I’m thinking of the Hudson River School of painters when I think of river/lake-escapes or Albert Bierstadt’s paintings of the Rocky Mountains. Quite a challenge.

    • Good point. People have tried to replicate with photographs some European paintings making wonderful images.

      • Yes, stand exactly where the painter was. Interesting thing to try but… is that originality? I would guess that’s up to the person taking the photograph.

        • Taking the opportunity to learn from paintings is one thing. Doing a now then shot has some merit, especially if you can get the light right.

          • That’s true. There are kinds of variables involved. Let the artist/photographer make the decision to create.
