The tutorials on editing and the included lightroom presets have been invaluable as well. Landscape art is as old as art itself. Cave drawings, Chinese murals and Minoan Greek frescoes are all ways of portraying the world around the artist. That so many cultures across so many eons have portrayed Earth in different ways tells us that fundamentals definitely exist. Some photos may look spontaneous and lucky—a streak of lightning, a fish leaping up out of a river—but this game has rules, and if you know the rules, you can take as good a shot as anyone.
The photography tricks section is amazing, the images I have been creating with these tutorials have been a big hit with my friends on social media and are now some of the most popular in my portfolio. Good cityscape photography makes the viewer feel both things: The same general rules apply: The biggest difference is that cities change at night.
A mountain is a mountain any time of day, but by night, a building transforms into a blaze of lights to challenge the stars, roads light up with moving dots of red and yellow, neon lights line the streets in attempts to catch your eye. Telling a story with people in it is a surefire way to increase human interest. When it comes to intersections, some bigger cities—New York, Tokyo, Toronto—will have four-way crosswalks, where pedestrians stream across in all directions, stopping cars on all four sides of the intersection.
These make especially great hectic shots, with cloudy masses surrounded by headlights and condo lights. The world has grown beyond just Photoshop. If you only invest in one program, I would recommend Lightroom. The first few pages in this section will cover the quick and effective processing methods using the Lightroom presets provided with the book, then we will dive in deeper if you want to take your photos further. Photography has traditionally been the realm of the real. It documents things.
Perspective could be toyed with. This changed the way people worked with depth, color and reality itself. Today, capturing reality is half the battle.
Playing with multiple exposures, HDR and perspective can create worlds beyond what we can see with our own eyes. Trick photography takes that pioneering kernel of photography—capturing reality—and takes it one step further. Light painting is conceptually easy: We do this all the time with regular cityscape night photography, especially when cars drive through our shots, leaving behind stripes of red and yellow light.
The only way to grab it is with a panorama. In this infrared light, cameras help us better understand the world we live in. This chapter will take you through the whole process of how to get started. Because lightning can not be predicted—the intensity, brightness and location are always different—it is extremely difficult to guess the proper exposure.
The whole process of photographing lightning requires experience, luck and patience. The goal here is to help you understand the full potential of photography, even the crazy stuff, so you can instinctively recognize any photographic opportunity that comes up.
