A few months ago, Fstoppers released “Photographing The World 3” with Elia Locardi. This 18-hour tutorial covers everything you could want to know about landscape and cityscape photography.
For the last few months, we have been bringing you behind-the-scenes videos of the creation of this tutorial, and today, we have reached episode 13, the final chapter of this story. Our final location for the tutorial was New York City, and this BTS episode covers all three of the lessons taught in the city. For each of these lessons, Elia used a new piece of gear to capture a very specific image.
For the first shot, Elia used the new Fujifilm GFX 50S and the then-unreleased GF 23mm f/4 lens. The weather was brutally cold and windy that night, but Elia was able to blend two long exposures together to get a killer shot with a very interesting aspect ratio.
For the next lesson, we went to Top of the Rock in Manhattan to shoot the city from above. For this shot, Elia used a Nikon D750 and 19mm f/4 tilt-shift lens. By shifting down, Elia was able to capture a killer composition without having to distort vertical lines.
For the final shot, Elia used a Gigapan to automatically capture a gigantic panorama.
Keep in mind that if you buy this full tutorial, not only will you get the complete lessons on location, but you will also get Elia's images and you will be able to follow along with Elia as he edits each shot.
