1. The staging of nature: It depends on the time of day
In addition to the subject to be photographed, one factor in particular is decisive for nature photography: the right light! The perfect light for my subject depends a lot on how I want to show it in my picture. First of all I think about WHAT exactly I want to photograph, WHERE in nature I find this motif and finally HOW I want to depict it. If I have a specific idea about these three points, the WHEN comes into play. Because for the perfect nature photo it is important to decide when the light is so favorable that I capture the lighting mood ideally. Therefore, I consciously take the time to keep my eyes open on my walks and often keep them in the same place several times. I literally study my surroundings and often achieve much nicer moods than with photos that I just take quickly "on the move"
