How to Get Super Sharp Landscape Photography Images

April 15th, 2014

The most common question I get asked by my workshop students is ‘how do you get such sharp images?’. It’s actually really simple. Basically, avoid movement of any kind while the shutter is open, focus well and choose the right aperture for your creative vision. Mostly it’s just plain old common sense with a couple […]

Question by james b: how do i get a landscape license in Georgia?
ive started a landscape buisness and trying to find out if liscense is needed.was told by a contractor that it wasnt needed but told by a another it was.

Best answer:

Answer by $ Billy Ray$ Valentine
From what I gathered searching a few sites, it appears that the only license needed is if you are going to become a “landscape architect” or working with asbestos removal. Just to be safe, here is a link to the Georgia State Professional Licensing Board with info and a contact number.. Perhaps you can call them and you would get the right answer in a couple minutes…

What Are Architectural Landscape Photos?

May 2nd, 2012

What Are Architectural Landscape Photos?

There aren’t many but some of us take an interest in architectural landscape photos. With a view to giving some insight on this subject I have created this article to give a basic understanding and supply some facts about its origins. Some of us become interested in architectural landscape photos later in life, it doesn’t matter when you take an interest but when you do you’ll be hooked.

If taking architectural landscape photos is one of your hobbies, it might be interesting for you to read a brief history of architectural photography. Commercial portraiture was the main area of interest in the early years of photography. The ones who made architectural landscape photos were generally travelers, for different business reasons, not only especially for photography. At that time (the middle of the 19th century), photographers usually worked from a convenient window rather than at street level, as they do now.

WHF Talbot, one of the first photographers, used to take architectural landscape photos from his hotel window, in the cities he visited. Roger Fenton, the first war photographer was the first one to take fine architectural studies, using calotypes, both in Britain, his home country, and in Russia (in Kiev, Moscow and St. Petersburg). He learnt the waxed paper calotype process from Gustave Le Grey, its inventor, in his journeys to Paris.

Francis Frith was the first one to make the Middle East familiar to the civilized world, by the architectural landscape photos he took in his journeys. He beard with him very large cameras and used the collodion process, as he had to work in hot and dusty conditions.
Samuel Bourne is another British photographer that became famous for his work in India.

Most of the early architectural landscape photos give the subjects the impression of import and grandeur. The lenses needed for architecture were quite different from the ones used in portraiture. They had to give sharpness and linear drawing, but there was no need for high speed, as buildings sit still.

In the late 19th century, photographers were advised to keep the camera back vertical and to photograph buildings from the normal eye level, instead of using elevated viewpoints, in order to suggest the normal impression of height. The frontage and a side of the building had to be both included in the architectural landscape photo. Camera movements were also considered essential, and the most important movement was the rising front.

Frederick H. Evans is regarded as the finest architectural photographer of his era. He is famous for his images of the exteriors and interiors of English and French medieval cathedrals. He adopted the platinotype technique, which best suited his subject matter. His ideal regarding architectural landscape photos was the “perfect” photographic representation, unretouched and not modified at all.

The city growth at the end of the 19th century lead to the development of commercial architectural landscape photography. The most important companies that took advantage on this new opportunity, in New York, were the Byron Company and the company founded by Norman and Lionel Wurts.

In the beginning of the 20th century, the modern movement brought new standards, both in architecture and photography. Some of the new modernist photographers in 1920s were Berenice Abbott in New York, Ilse Bing in Frankfurt and Margaret Bourke-White, best known as a photojournalist. One of the best-regarded companies that made architectural landscape photos was Hedrich-Blessing. It was founded in Chicago in 1929 by Ken Hedrich and Henry Blessing. Today, Jim Hedrich, Ken’s son still runs the firm. The founder’s well-known quote “Don’t make photographs, think them.” suggests that their photos had something to say about the building, not only record an image of it.

Although he was an architect by profession, Ezra Stoller established himself as a leading architectural photographer. Some of his most important works are the architectural landscape photos of Le Corbusier’s Chapel Notre-Dame-du-Haut at Ronchamp. The key elements in Stoller’s work are light and space. Esto, the company founded by Stoller still makes some of the best work in the field.

Julius Shulman took a revolutionary approach upon modernism, turning the modernist principle upside down. He was the first one to introduce people in the frame of the camera. He did not want to show abstract images of wall details or empty rooms. In his architectural landscape photos, he “humanized” the houses designed by architects such as Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig or Rudolf Schindler. Shulman is best known for his photograph “Case Study House #22, Los Angeles, 1960. Pierre Koenig, Architect”. The end of modernism also represented the end of Shulman’s career, as his ideas of composition, the sensitive images and his ways of working were deeply modernistic.

Some of the most important contemporary architectural photographs are Gerald Zugmann, Mark Citret and Richard Margolis. You can take a look at their architectural landscape photos on their web sites.

Monument Wars: Washington, D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape Reviews

Monument Wars: Washington, D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape

The National Mall in Washington, D.C., is “a great public space, as essential a part of the American landscape as the Grand Canyon,” according to architecture critic Paul Goldberger, but few realize how recent, fragile, and contested this achievement is. In Monument Wars, Kirk Savage tells the Mall’s engrossing story–its historic plan, the structures that populate its corridors, and the sea change it reveals regarding national representation. Central to this narrative is a dramatic shift from the nineteenth-century concept of a decentralized landscape, or “ground”-heroic statues spread out in traffic circles and picturesque parks-to the twentieth-century ideal of “space,” in which authority is concentrated in an intensified center, and the monument is transformed from an object of reverence to a space of experience. Savage’s lively and intelligent analysis traces the refocusing of the monuments themselves, from that of a single man, often on horseback, to commemorations of common soldiers or citizens; and from monuments that celebrate victory and heroism to memorials honoring victims. An indispensable guide to the National Mall, Monument Wars provides a fresh and fascinating perspective on over two hundred years of American history.

Creating an Awesome Landscape Design with Washington Contractors

February 8th, 2010

Nowadays, homeowners are very particular about the aesthetic value of their homes. They are not to blame for who wants to live in place similar to a jungle? Every one of us naturally wants a home that is attractive and pleasing to the eyes. That is why in Washington, a landscape contractor is present practically everyday in different houses in a certain street.

Landscaping is another aspect of home improvement so one cannot tag it as luxury. I would rather label it a need. Every one of us dreams to have a better place to live in. We do everything to keep ourselves and families in style and comfort. We can fully entrust our landscape maintenance to Washington landscape professionals because they are equipped with the latest tools. What’s more, they constantly hone their skills and deepen their knowledge on landscaping. They are never complacent or satisfied with what they already know.

Coming up with a landscape design is not easy for it entails a lot of effort to achieve favorable results. If you are living in the beautiful Eastside, where every homeowner invests to achieve a fantastic landscaping design, then you must not be left behind! Allot a portion of your budget for the improvement of your landscape. This is something worthwhile you can do for yourself and family. Water feature pond is one of the awesome attractions that you can incorporate into your backyard. Ask your landscape contractor if it’s possible to apply this in the usual landscape design of Seattle, WA which he plans to conduct in your home. Tell him you want your home to bear some form of uniqueness.

Though it’s natural to want the most beautiful plants in your patio, don’t ask the landscape contractor you hired to gather all the plants similar to those in your neighbor’s house. Remember, each element that you include in your landscape design should fit the form or style of your house. Otherwise, you’ll find your place in total disarray.

Have a serious talk with your landscape contractor. Listen to what he has to suggest and share your ideas as well. This will quicken the process and most likely churn out the best results.

Movies can also inspire. Check out those feel good flicks where the cameras always pan to a character’s lawn. Notice the types of plants and other elements present here then ask your landscape contractor if it’s applicable to your own patio.

We shouldn’t look at landscaping as a burdensome and costly activity. In fact we should look at it from a positive perspective. If only you can manage your expenses better by not throwing your money at whims, you’ll have more to spare for a landscape design.

Pretty tough? Hope this article could help you make up your mind. My beautiful green patio and clear fishpond teeming with koi were only part of a grand dream realized through the help of my most trusted landscape contractor in Washington. Had it not been for my patience and good judgment, I doubt that I’d be sharing this stuff with you.

Be practical yet demanding. You can make your dream garden come true without forking out a chunk. Money is very hard to earn these days. So make the most out of it. Use it wisely.
