The Landscape Mode icon on your camera looks like a mountain.
When you use this mode, you are telling your camera that you’re photographing a large area of scenery and want everything in focus. Internally, the camera sets the f-stop to allow less light to come through the lens but bringing the entire scope into focus.
Now, you might think you can only use Landscape for horizontal picturesque spots but this is not so. For you see, even a tree takes up massive space and demands attention.
This is a nice photo but look what happens when you turn the camera vertical!!*
Try using the Landscape Mode on other vertical subjects like buildings, giants, enormous icons found at All-Star resorts, gargantuan hats, hotels with falty elevators, etc…
*Results may differ from person to person, camera to camera, neighbor to neighbor
father to son, one for all and all for one!
