Creating a Sense of Place

The experience of landscape photography can be conveyed to the viewer by not only the subject but also the environment in which you photographed it. Often this proves to be difficult especially when the subject competes too much with the background. Jay uses a simple technique of shallow DOF combined with a carefully chosen subject to capture a sense of place.

About Author Jay Patel

I could startoff like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.

Patience is a virtue...unless you are chasing your dreams

    Short and sweet, to the point. Thanks for the video!

    It’s one of the things I try to figure out when shooting close-ups is how much “information”
    I want to include in the background and how sharp do I want it to be.

    Looking forward to friendlier weather to get outside again and start shooting some nature.
