Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Amazon)
Focal Length: 17mm
Shutter Speed: 1/30 sec
Note: Paul Zizka captured this stunning view of a mountain climber on Mount Victoria in Banff National Park, Canada. The morning sunshine lit up the sky, showcasing warm and cold tones off the mountain tops. You can’t predict a perfect scene like this every time you shoot landscapes, but the more often you shoot, the better your chances are at capturing moments like this. Great capture!
Tip: Paul used the rule of thirds when shooting the mountain climber and scenery. The rule of thirds (wiki) can give your photos a heightened sense of interest versus shooting your subjects directly in the middle of your composition. He also used the golden hour rule (wiki) to capture the morning sunrise.
