Capturing emotion in your photos is one of the most crucial things you can do to create compelling imagery, and yet, it's one of the things we talk about the least. This great video examines the importance of capturing emotion in landscape photography and how you can go about doing it yourself.
Coming to you from Simon Baxter, this interesting video talks about the importance of being able to find and convey emotion in your landscape images. Perhaps the reason that we don't discuss this topic more is simply because whereas things like technical parameters and settings are easily conveyed in objective formats, the idea of emotion is a bit more nebulous and difficult to articulate. It can also be easy to make the mistake of becoming too personally invested in our own work, relying on a personal connection to a scene in a way that others won't be able to see, which then clouds our ability to objectively judge the photo. It's a tricky balance and one for which there is no quick route to, but it's something that nonetheless is well worth thinking about in your own work. Check out the video above for Baxter's full thoughts on the subject.
