In the video below, photographer Attilio Ruffo covers a wide range of topics, including vision and creativity in landscape photography. Further, he shares some viewer edits of one of his recent images and also shows how he captured and edited the photo himself.
Firstly, vision and creativity in landscape photography is a very big topic. There is little more important in photography than creativity. After all, your artistic vision is what makes your photographs uniquely your own and is what makes photography such a powerful creative outlet and great way for people to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Many of us may think about creativity in photography as beginning and ending when you are with your camera out in the field. You are selecting the composition and settings and that is certainly creative. But how you process and edit a photo is also a very powerful reflection of your own artistic vision. This is demonstrated well as we look at how different photographers edited Ruffo's image. The mood of a shot can change dramatically based on only a few simple adjustments during post-processing.
