This article provides some simple techniques on photographing landscapes using f/2.8 with a wide angle constant aperture zoom lens.
We can risk some image softness from diffraction when we stop our lens down further than is needed to achieve deep depth-of-field. Diffraction is not only a potential issue when using smaller sensor cameras like M4/3, but also with high density full frame sensors.

This article shares a selection of Wyoming landscape images that were captured handheld during a self-drive photography tour we did through South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado a few years ago. We were on a pretty tight schedule and covered 10,187 km (~6,330 miles) during our 26 day trip. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to spend in Wyoming.

This article discusses small sensor landscape photography. It may be a good idea to grab a cup of coffee or brew some tea, and settle in for a while… as this is a fairly lengthy article.
We typically want to achieve deep depth-of-field with landscape images. So, our choice of lens focal length, aperture and focusing distance all need to be considered. It is also important to use as low an ISO value as possible to maintain the most dynamic range and colour depth in our landscape photographs when using small sensor cameras.
