Spend 20 minutes going outside to shoot 12 landscape shots from the baseball, football, and softball fields.
- Make sure each shot has a large depth of field. In other words, make sure even the background objects are in focus.
- In each shot make sure you have foreground, midground, and background objects.
- (Most Landscape shots will have water, trees, and mountains. However, just do the best with what Shorecrest has to offer).
- Do not center the horizon. Place it in the upper or lower third.
- Look for lines on the ground or even in the sky.
- Use tripods as needed.
