hands up and dji’s new osmo mobile 3 will shoot

Hot on the heels of Benro announcing its 3XS Lite smartphone gimbal, DJI has responded by unveiling the Osmo Mobile 3, which packs a handful of new tricks over the existing – and very capable – Osmo Mobile 2. These include a revamped, foldable design for easy portability, new locking mechanisms and a 15-hour battery, although the highlight is a Quick Roll feature that allows the bracket to spin between portrait and landscape orientations with a double tap of the Mode button – much like on the Benro 3XS Lite. Something else shared with that rival is the design of the bracket, specifically the fact that it doesn’t get in the way of charging and audio ports. Through the handle, the user is also able to quickly recenter the device through a…

refine the frame

Landscape photography is a popular and accessible genre, but it can often be difficult to create a unique and striking image that will stand out from the rest. With a desire to capture wide expanses of land and rolling vistas, photographers employ the power of their wide-angle lens to capture as much information from the landscape as they can. However, it is this mission to retain as many details and elements of the landscape as possible that will ultimately be the stumbling block for many. Instead, consider stripping your images back, take a measured approach to composition and refine your captures in order to create more minimal and refined imagery. Simplicity in landscape photography is often more striking and impactful than a jam-packed vista. Over the next few pages, you’ll discover…

consider your lens

Landscape photographers will often shoot with wide-angle lenses in order to fit as much of a scene as possible into their frame – if you’re shooting close to a foreground object, using a wide-angle lens will help to add context to the shot, and if you want to enhance the scale and extend the perceived depth captured, then a wide-angle lens will help to achieve that too. However, the wide angle of view also makes it far more difficult to create a clean composition that doesn’t include any distracting or jarring objects, so sometimes it’s better to opt for a slightly narrower lens in order to take more control of your composition and create a more refined image. Using an ultra-wide lens will make composing a simple and refined capture…

draw the viewer in

When it comes to adopting a more measured and refined approach to your landscape photography, taking the time to consider where each element sits in the frame is more important than ever. You don’t want the viewer’s eyes drifting away from the main subject to a distracting object or bright tone towards the edge of the frame. “The primary subject or focal point of most, if not all photographs will occupy the middle two thirds of the frame, and I feel it’s very important to direct the viewer towards the subject as quickly as possible,” explains MacVicar. “Any distractions near the perimeter of the frame can really complicate this process for the viewer.” Landscape pro Martijn van der Nat (martijnvandernat.nl) agrees that the subject needs to be near or in the brightest…

exclude elements

If something in the frame doesn’t add anything to your composition, then it’s probably detracting from it – have another look, and compose your shot again to eliminate the unnecessary objects. “When I think I have the perfect composition, I mark that spot and spend a few more minutes looking for a better composition,” explains MacVicar. “Sometimes you’re a few metres away from composing a better photograph.” “I call it ‘The Chaos Master’ – l cut out all unnecessary and distracting things. Only valuable objects deserve to be in the frame,” says Evgeni Dinev (evgenidinevphotography.com). “So these have a chance to increase the emotion that I need to take from the picture. If there are too many interesting objects, the image will look too messy with nothing specific to catch the…
