By Zac Henderson

Like we discussed in the first post, sometimes it can be a good decision to capture some foreground interest in your image of the night sky to turn the image into a landscape. This has the effect of providing depth and perspective to the image. This is a good choice, however because the night sky is so dark there’s likely little light hitting your foreground.

Hyperfocal Distance: Get the most out of your landscape photography
By Zac Henderson
Hyperfocal Distance Landscape

There’s more to landscape and nature photography than setting up a tripod in front of the mountains, letting your camera autofocus, and pressing a button.

Creativity in nature photography is important, and often there are subjects in your foreground that you want to include in the image, but you also want to keep the mountains in the distance in focus. There are several ways to do this: focus stacking, camera movements like tilt, and the use of hyperfocal distance.
