What You Need

Scenic photography isn’t particularly equipment- or gadget-intensive. Your digital camera and its standard zoom lens will be fine in most cases. There are a few optional extras that you might want to consider, and I’ll describe them in this section.

Your Scenic Camera

Scenic photos look gorgeous in large prints, and you might want to use your best shots from your travels as part of the décor of your home or office. For that reason, scenic photography is one digital pursuit that puts a premium on megapixels. The higher your camera’s resolution, the better. You can take some good scenic photos with a 3 megapixel camera, but don’t count on making prints much larger than 8 × 10 inches with the kind of detail you’ll want to see. A 5- to 8-megapixel (or better) digital camera will provide the resolution you need to make 16 × 20 or even 20 × 30-inch prints.
