What is Landscape Photgraphy?

Some would say that that landscape photography is the absence of a biological subject in a photo; and at times they would be absolutely correct.  However, a landscape is also when people, animals, cars etc, aren't less importance than the environment around them.  Notice the beach in this scene and how the people appear to be silhouettes.  What the main subject, is it the people or the beach?  The people add to the scene but don't actually make it.

In order to take great landscape photos you are going to need a decent camera, any (camera over 8 megapixel should work) as well as knowledge on composition and lighting.  My guide: What is Landscape Photography will tell you how to harness these tools as well as the equipment you will need.  (Link opens squidoo lens.)
