Landscape Photography: Same Place with Different Light at Different Times

It’s human tendency to rush to different places to capture all the beauty that is there in the world. But, with experience – you learn that slowing down and being patient gets your creative juices flowing that rewards you with some amazing photographs.

As a photographer, you’re aware how light changes a scene; every place wears a different look at different times of the day.

You might be wanting to photograph your favourite place/landscape during different seasons of the year but, if you can’t travel that often – you can surely capture the beauty of the place on your trip by visiting it, the same day at short intervals or by photographing it from the window of your resort room – if you’ve got a good view.

Below 4 photographs depict how light conceals and reveals different elements of the same scene:

For time lapse photography – you can either shoot a time lapse video from your DSLR Camera of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moving clouds or moving people on the street etc. You can also take a lot of photographs at short intervals and then create a time lapse video out of the photographs using a software.

Well, if you don’t have a DSLR Camera, you can shoot a Hyperlapse Video from your android smartphone (remember to keep your phone on a stand to avoid shake as you’ll be recording the video for several minutes). With Hyperlapse videos, you can show actions/movements that are happening at a normal/slow speed in the scene at a much faster speed.
