On your next photography outing, take just one camera body and one lens. Force yourself to learn how to use the few implements you have to create eye-catching photos, no matter the subject. Above all else, one of the easiest things you can do to develop your creative eye is to grab your camera and take photos without the worry of making mistakes. Even the best photographers in the world still make mistakes. In the end, photography is an art, and art is incredibly personal.
What you think is a mistake might be viewed as a jaw-dropping photo by someone else. Let go of your fears, bring the camera to your eye, and fire away! Written by PT Editor on 20 March Of course, it takes practice to master landscape photography techniques and a creative eye to bring everything together as well. It's one thing to read about landscape photography tips.
It's another thing entirely to actually see them put to use. Though the natural inclination is to photograph landscapes in a horizontal format, as you can see above, shooting in vertical format certainly has its merits. The inclusion of foreground interest in this case gives this shot of Moraine Lake much more depth. The juxtaposition of the jagged rocks in the foreground with the smooth water of the lake is also a beautiful element that provides some visual tension to the shot. The 16mm aperture used for this shot helped the photographer maintain the depth of field needed to keep everything in focus.
Some photographers shirk from the opportunity to photograph foggy or misty landscapes because it softens the image so much. But as you can see, when fog and mist is combined with elements that have strong lines, it works beautifully. In this case, the sharp edges of the mountains in the background and even the silhouetted forms of the trees in the mid-ground give the shot that extra level of definition that looks so lovely paired with the fog and mist.
Sunset gets all the attention when it comes to great light for landscape photography, but sunrise has a lot to offer as well. And while that color is what grabs your attention, the fine details of the ice give the photo beautiful structure that delights the eye even further. Blue hour might not be as well known as golden hour , but as you can see, it offers unique opportunities for capturing landscapes in a unique way. Blue hour occurs right before sunrise and right after sunset, and its cool, blue tones are perfectly suited for wintery landscapes like the one above.
In this case, the photographer used a second shutter speed to give the clouds and the water a smoother appearance. An incredibly tranquil landscape photo! When composing a landscape photo, leading lines can be a powerful tool. Instead, the jagged edge of the frozen shoreline in the foreground and the slope of the mountains in the background work together to drive our eyes towards the prize of this shot - the sunrise. Directing the viewer's eye in this way helps them to interact with the image more thoroughly, and that's a good thing!
Leading lines can be straight, curved, diagonal, converging When photographing landscapes, it's absolutely imperative that the horizon be perfectly level. If not, it can throw the entire photo off. Getting the horizon straight is easy, too. Many cameras have a virtual horizon, and if not, you can use the rule of thirds grid in live view to get things lined up. Many tripods have built-in bubble levels for getting horizons straight, and you can even get a hot-shoe mounted bubble level as well. In other words, there's no excuse for a crooked horizon!
However, this image was taken on the vertical at 17mm, and as a result, we not only get to see the gorgeous colors of the sky, but also the fine details of the plants in the foreground. Sometimes it's the small details in a landscape photo that end up taking the image to the next level. With that in mind, always keep your eyes peeled for textures, patterns, colors, shapes, and other features that can add interest to your landscape photography. Though the rule of thirds suggests shifting the primary subject to the left or right of center, sometimes, the subject looks best if you break that rule.
In the image above, the mountain peak is framed smack dab in the middle of the shot, and it works beautifully. Also notice how the horizon line is in the middle of the image as well - something that's typically a no-no. But again, breaking this rule has resulted in a gorgeous photo! Don't be afraid to bend or break the rules - it could greatly benefit your landscape photography.
That's an important point because sometimes photographers get caught up in having the newest gear, and the gear you use simply isn't a big deal. Instead, what's important is that you know how to use the gear you have to get solid shots. That means practicing how you compose a landscape photo, how you frame it, and understanding how to add depth with leading lines, shooting through something, or using a frame within a frame.
If you can master the technical and artistic elements of landscape photography, you can use any camera to create something beautiful. These photos were taken by Dani Lefrancois, a photographer and workshop leader based in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Written by PT Editor on 24 April You can have the most stunning subject to photograph in the most gorgeous lighting, but if you don't take care to compose the shot well, no amount of good light and inherent beauty will prevent the image from being a dud.
There are plenty of photography composition tips to help you create a better photo. That's the good news. The bad news - if you can call it that - is that it just takes a bit of practice to become adept at using a compositional technique. What's more, it can get a bit overwhelming trying to decide which compositional techniques to learn, let alone which ones to implement. Again, a little bit of practicing a handful of compositional techniques will help you determine what you like to do to give your photos a boost. Virtually all my landscape photos were in horizontal format and virtually all of my portraits were in vertical format.
There's nothing wrong with that approach; it's just expected. In photography, you want to give viewers something unexpected! When I started forcing myself to change the aspect ratio I used to take photos, I noticed that it required me to think harder about the shot. For example, when photographing a landscape in vertical format I had to take the foreground and background into more account, given that in vertical format both areas have more real estate in the frame. What I found to be most helpful is to take both a horizontal and a vertical shot of the same subject, and then compare how they look and feel afterward.
It really helped me to develop my eye for framing and composition and it will do the same for you. One of the most powerful compositional tools you can use, especially in landscape photography, is leading lines. Leading lines are great because they help your viewers understand where they need to look in the photo. Rather than their eyes wandering around the shot, a leading line will immediately grab their attention, allowing you to direct them towards the primary subject.
There are all sorts of lines you can use in a shot, from a roadway to a simple path to a fence or a wall. In the image above, the fallen tree on the left side of the shot points directly at the man. That kind of subtle leading line is highly effective, and viewers often won't even realize that their gaze has been influenced by something so nondescript. When thinking about your leading lines, it's natural to go right to using vertical and horizontal lines. However, this can be a little predictable, and in the case of horizontal lines, in particular, it can be a little boring too.
Note how both sets of lines add drama to the shot that wouldn't be possible if they were simply horizontal or vertical lines. Instead, the horizontal nature of these lines helps widen and deepen the shot, as well as accentuate the mountain peaks through which they meander. Not only does simplifying the scene mean that there are fewer moving parts for you to get right, but it also gives the viewer a break too.
Rather than being distracted by a bunch of different elements, a simplified composition allows the viewer to engage more easily with the primary subject. As was done in the image above, select a strong subject - something that stands out in the scene because of its size, shape color, texture, and so forth.
Then frame the subject in a way that ensures viewers can't miss it. If need be, crop out other elements of the scene. In this case, the woman is obviously the subject, but the colors and textures of the surrounding landscape contribute to a stronger composition but without distracting attention from the woman. An easy way to create a more impactful composition while keeping it simple as well is to fill the frame with your subject.
Filling the frame gives a photo more impact because it eliminates all the clutter around it that might distract the viewer's eye. What's more, filling the frame brings the subject to life, making it look and feel bigger in the shot, like the zebra in the image above. There are several ways to fill the frame, including zooming in with your lens, getting closer to the subject by changing your shooting position, and cropping the image in post-processing.
In any case, filling the frame is a more unique way to compose a shot, and as a result, it will be immediately more interesting to view. When you fill the frame as was discussed in the previous section, you rely less on what's going on in the background and concentrate more on the subject. But sometimes, what's going on in the background can be highly visually interesting and help tie the entire image together.
See a Problem?
Now, as we learned earlier, that doesn't mean you should overcomplicate the shot. Instead, simply think about how the background might add a bit of interest without distracting from the subject. Clearly, the boy is the primary subject, but by giving a hint of the background , we have a more interesting shot. The forested landscape - even though it's blurry - gives context to where this photo was taken and what the boy was doing at the time. In other words, the background helped to tell a more complete story about the boy, and that makes for a more powerful shot.
No list of photography composition rules is complete without mentioning the Rule of Thirds. As you likely already know, the Rule of Thirds states that you should avoid putting your subject in the middle of the frame. The reasoning is that having a subject in the middle creates photos that just aren't all that interesting with a static look and feel to them.
Instead, by dividing the image into nine equal quadrants and placing the subject to the left or right of center or above or below center , you'll get a more impactful image, not unlike the one above. But it's not just shifting the subject away from the center that makes this rule work. You still need to think about how it impacts the composition. In this example, the texture created by the waves on the left side of the shot balance out the presence of the man on the right side of the shot.
What's more, his positioning on the right helps give the sense that he can continue to walk toward our left, creating a more dynamic shot more on that below. Even though photographs are static and two-dimensional, there are compositional tricks that help you convey a sense of motion. One of the most impactful is to give your subject room to move into, such that the image has an implied sense of motion. This trick is often used when photographing things like a running animal or a moving car - the subject is placed on one side of the frame with empty space in front of them.
Note how the man is clearly casting his net to our right. By shifting his position to the left, that movement has more impact and we're better able to imagine him throwing the net and reeling it back in. Just imagine this shot had the man been in the middle or even on the right side of the frame. It wouldn't be nearly as dynamic or visually impactful, would it? A difficulty that some beginning photographers struggle with is oversaturating the colors of their shots. This is often done in post-processing and gives the image colors that punch you in the face and, quite simple, look fake.
In fact, color is one of the tools you can use to draw a viewer's attention to the shot, and within the shot, to the subject. In the image above, note how the pops of color of beach towels and umbrellas draw your eyes to the crowd. This works well because the colors, though intense, are small enough that it doesn't become overwhelming to view. If you're closer to the subject, fill the frame to limit the range of colors in the shot, again, to prevent it from becoming overwhelming.
Also look for ways to use complementary colors - orange and blue or red and green - as they go well together to create a more dynamic shot. Though it's important to learn these and other compositional rules, it's perhaps even more important to learn when to break them. Photography is often about feel, and sometimes the best feeling you can convey in your images is to set the rules aside and go with your gut. That means that sometimes you'll break the Rule of Thirds. Sometimes you'll use a ton of very bright colors.
Still other times you won't include any leading lines in your landscapes. The key to your success is to learn and practice the rules outlined above, that way you can create more compelling photos. The next step after that is to learn to recognize when the rules just aren't working, that way you can break them in a purposeful manner and still get a gorgeous shot. Have a look at these and other photography composition rules in action in the video below from COOPH:.
Written by PT Editor on 29 November That's on full display in the featured image above. The woman would be beautiful in a color shot too, but in black and white, the lines of her body, the contrast of her pale skin against the dark background, and the soft, even lighting turn this into a show-stopping photo. Granted, not all black and white photos are winners, and unlike some photographers think, black and white shouldn't be the go-to treatment to try and rescue images that are poorly lit, not composed well, or suffer from some other malady like blurriness.
That means that though black and white photography can be more forgiving, it shouldn't be treated like a rescue project for bad photos. Instead, with the right approach and preparation, black and white photos can turn into gorgeously elegant shots, no matter the subject.
There is elegance in simplicity, and this portrait of a little girl demonstrates that concept well. Not only does the close-up view of her face put the fine details of things like the texture of her hair and her freckled skin on full view, but the black and white conversion serves to make those details stand out even more.
Even her eyelashes take on more prominence without the distraction of color to take the eye away from the abundance of textures and shapes in this portrait. This image also shows how a lower contrast black and white image can be quite fetching. Note that there are still bright whites and dark blacks, but that they take a backseat to the abundance of middle grays. The result is a feeling of calm and serenity that jives well with the sweet innocence of the little girl.
Then again, there is something to be said about the visual impact of a portrait with greater contrast. Like the featured image, the image above benefits from strong areas of light and dark, giving the portrait a sophisticated, high-fashion look. In this instance, the lines created by the model's dress and hat help accentuate the richness of the shot. Often, using lines in black and white photos is a primary tool for incorporating more interest. In this case, those lines also help elevate the image in terms of elegance.
Even a simple photo of a flower takes on a different visual impact when the image is converted to black and white. In this instance, great care was taken to create an environment in which the delicate petals of the flower take on the elegance of a jewel. The lighting had to be just right to get this effect - bright enough to highlight the texture of the flower's petals, yet focused enough such that the light falls off quickly and doesn't illuminate the background.
In this case, we see again how crucial contrast is to a successful black and white photo: High-key black and white images might not be as common, but I think you'll agree that they have their place in terms of creating a high-impact shot. This image is an ideal example of taking a subject with tons of visual appeal and ramping up that appeal with a level of contrast that's both in your face and beautiful at the same time.
In this case, the bright white backdrop is an ideal complement to the delicate and intricate features of the dandelion. What's more, since the background is devoid of features, we get a full view of the dandelion's lines, form, and other details.

As seen here, the texture of the elephant's skin adds depth and dimension to the shot. The horizontal lines of the mother's skin contrasts nicely with the vertical grass in the foreground, creating a visual playground for the eye. Note as well the position from which the photo was taken: Even with that powerful stance, the elephants have a graceful look about them that just couldn't be achieved had this image remained in color.
If you've ever seen an Ansel Adams landscape, you already know how a black and white treatment can result in a stunning, stylish take on the world around us. Much like is central to the success of a portrait or a photo of nature and wildlife, landscapes benefit from the inclusion of things like areas of highlight and shadow. In this case, the lightness of the water combines with the darkness of the clouds and the trees in the background to create a classic black and white look with excellent dynamic range.
Like the portrait of the little girl above, the abundance of middle grays helps give this shot an increased sense of tranquility and calm - effects that are mirrored in the still waters of the lake. In that regard, converting this image to black and white doesn't just make it a more elegant shot, it helps accentuate the themes that are already present.
If you ask me, there's something mystical and mysterious about fog that gives landscapes an extra level of visual interest. But when fog is combined with a black and white conversion, that feeling of mystery is only enhanced. The key to an impactful black and white foggy shot is to include strong visual elements that grab the eye's attention. In this case, the strong, linear lines created by the tree trunks offer a nice juxtaposition to the ether of the fog.
What's more, the repeating pattern of the trees gives the image some structure, which, again, is crucial for a black and white photo, no matter the subject. Without the benefit of color, things like lines, textures, and patterns help give the eye something on which to focus. I noted earlier that there is beauty in simplicity.
And though some might be hesitant to go the simple route when creating an abstract photo, I can see the value of doing so when that simplistic, abstract scene is presented in black and white. In the example above, the high-key background helps put the gentle lines and curves of the dark fabric on full view. The manner in which the fabric seems to be waving in a gentle breeze is chic, a quality that is only enhanced by the contrast of the dark and light tones in the shot.
This image is proof positive that you don't need tons of detail to create a compelling black and white photo. Contrast, lines, and texture will carry you a long way! Because black and white photos can be, at times, much more elegant than color photos, you can get away with photographing objects that might seem odd or even mundane.
In the image above, a jet's engine becomes an interesting subject because of the black and white treatment. The strong lines created by the engine's fan provide structure similar to the tree trunks I discussed in the landscape image above. Working with that structure is lighting that offers just enough contrast that gives the photo needed depth, but without blowing out the highlights.
Notice on the left side of the frame how the light is gently reflected off the engine's blades. That bit of light contrasts beautifully with the darker recesses of the engine, the result of which is a classic image of a subject that usually goes without notice. This photo of an array of light bulbs puts the notion of contrast in a black and white image on full display. With a single bulb illuminated, we have a bright, featureless area of highlight that works nicely with the dark, shadow-filled corners of the shot.
What's more, that light helps illuminate the intricate and interesting details of the surrounding light bulbs - details that add visual impact to the shot. Again, as noted earlier, repeating patterns give structure to black and white images. In this case, the array of lights helps elevate this photo with a polished and refined look that helps these everyday objects take on a greater sense of luxury and elegance.
With that, you've got 11 beautiful examples of how converting your images to black and white can garner gorgeous results.
El Capitán Trueno by Víctor Mora
Just remember that when looking for subject matter for a black and white shot, focus on things like light and shadow , texture, lines, and patterns, as each of these features will enhance the stately appearance of the subject. Written by PT Editor on 17 May There's a lot of talk amongst photographers myself included about everything that's necessary for someone to create a better photo.
That includes the usual suspects - an understanding of light, learning how to use one's camera, and a dedication to understanding principles of composition. And while those are all necessary, even if you have mastery over those topics, without a little creative inspiration, that knowledge and those skills won't do you a whole lot of good. With that in mind, I've put together 11 stunning landscape photos to help inspire you for the coming weekend. The great thing about landscape photography is that it doesn't just have to be the landscape featured in the image.
In this beautiful desert shot, the caravan of camels adds shape and structure to a shot that would otherwise lack it. What's more, the caravan of camels accentuates the upward slope of the sand dune. That helps contrast it with the angle of the sunlight behind it, creating an interesting array of intersecting lines. If you want to add a little life and vitality to a landscape, try adding a human element or animals. As you can see here, it works quite well! Note how the low perspective brings landscape elements into the foreground to give the shot a more natural, landscape-type feel.
The view of the lake and the mountains in the background further helps ground the church in the surrounding environment for an interesting take on what landscape photography can mean. When you first glance at this photo, I'm guessing you notice two things before anything else - the setting sun and the glow of the leaves on the tree. And while those elements are certainly beautiful, you should note two other things - the person on the right side of the shot at mid-ground and the way that water was used in the foreground to lighten it up. As noted above, adding a human element can make a landscape a little more meaningful.
In this case, you might wonder what this person is taking a photo of as they crouch closer to the ground. Additionally, adding water to the foreground of the shot helps lighten up what would otherwise be a very dark area of the photograph. If you find that you're struggling with the dynamic range in your images being too wide, find a way to incorporate water. I'd argue that this beautiful shot of a seemingly lifeless landscape in the Canary Islands has a beauty unto itself because of the shapes and textures of the mountains and hills.
Without any vegetation, we have a full view of the interesting canyons, folds, and cracks in the earth. The leading lines created by the roadway also help by directing our eye from the foreground to the background. Try creating a simple landscape like this one this weekend that focuses on one or two features - a consistent color, for example, or the texture of the earth. When you want to restrict the view, use a frame within a frame to drive the viewer's eye deeper into this shot.
This is especially helpful for images like the one above, in which the focal point is the blanket of stars above the jagged mountains in the background. Another feature that helps draw our attention to the background elements is the leading line created by the winding pathway that leads from the foreground down to the valley and beyond. Incorporate one or both of these elements in your next landscape to see how they improve the viewing experience. But as you can see in the shot above, there is merit in using a longer focal length lens on your subject.
In this case, framing a closer shot of the Matterhorn allows us to really inspect its form, including the texture created by the rocks, trees, and snow on its face. This isn't to say you should only use a telephoto lens now - take a wide-angle and a telephoto and use each to take a photo of the same subject for a little variety. What makes this image so interesting is that high perspective. You get a sense of how the village below fits into the larger landscape. Additionally, the high vantage point allowed the photographer to highlight the jagged islands in the background, which, with the setting sun, makes for a very pleasing view.
Try changing the perspective from which you shoot your landscapes - it will add variety and drama to your collection of photos. But I think you'll agree that this type of perspective opens up a whole new world of opportunities for photographing landscapes. The detail of the black sand beach and its interaction with the incoming waves is almost so textural that you feel like you can touch the screen and feel the sand and water between your fingers!
The key to simple shots like this is finding contrasts between textures, shapes, colors or even values of dark and light. Long exposure landscape photography is one of my favorites because it helps you create a calm, serene scene where that calmness might not otherwise exist. Here, you can see the waves on the beach appear as milky smooth water to help with the serene vibe the sunset lends to that as well. Also notice the framing - the high horizon gives us enough of a view of the sunset's colors while also giving us a good view of the foreground interest. A well-balanced, colorful shot that makes you feel as though you're right there feeling the warm sun on your face!
In this case, being at the right place when the sun rises garnered impressive results as the Tetons are set ablaze with morning light. Another advantage of photographing landscapes in the morning is that with calm wind, waters are often calm as well for beautiful reflection shots. You might also find wildlife feeding in the early morning hours too.
It's a win-win situation! If you need more ideas, check out five fast landscape photography tips in the video below by Jimmy McIntyre:. Written by PT Editor on 16 July The great thing about landscape photography is that there are so many possibilities for creating an awesome photo.
Whether you prefer mountains or beaches, forests or rivers or something in between, there's a landscape for every photographer. Sometimes landscape photos can look and feel a bit overwhelming. That's why simplifying things and utilizing negative space can be so effective.
Rather than trying to cram everything about a landscape into a single frame, try framing your photos in a way that surrounds the subject with negative space, as shown above. Not only does this help viewers zero in on the subject more effectively like the person in the photos above , but it also creates a more unique and interesting view of the scenery. Another way to help your subject stand out in a landscape photo is to use a long lens. By shooting telephoto instead of wide-angle, your camera has much more reach so you can feature details that might otherwise get lost in the scene.
But shooting with a long lens also helps compress the perceived distance from foreground to background, so background elements appear much closer and larger, as seen above. The problem with shooting landscapes is that it can be difficult sometimes for viewers to get a good sense of the scale of the scene. In the image above, for example, the man standing on the overhanging rock gives us a much better understanding of just how big the mountains and the vertical drop are in this shot.
Often, using people as "props" for your landscape photos will help you increase the wow factor to create a much more dramatic photo. The problem is that when you're faced with a big, sweeping view of a gorgeous landscape, it might be hard to decide what feature to highlight as the subject of your photo.
Strong subjects don't have to be big, like a mountain peak. Instead, they just need to be interesting and have a feature that grabs people's attention. That feature might be its shape, color, texture or pattern. In the case of the image above, the tree's shape is eye-catching as is the pattern that its branches create. Don't be afraid to utilize the negative space or the telephoto lens techniques mentioned earlier in order to make your subject stronger in the frame.
That's because armed with the right filters, you can control challenging lighting that often gives your camera fits. That is, you'll typically find that a landscape is dark relative to the sky. That creates challenges for many cameras that can't handle the range of values from light to dark. That's where a graduated neutral density filter comes in handy. At first I was skeptical because it has a magnetic frame. I was concerned that this system wouldn't work well and that light leaks would be a problem.
The soft-edge transition between the dense and clear areas of the filter is perfect for landscapes that don't have a definite horizon. Gapless edges prevent extraneous light from entering between filters and causing flare or light leak as well. I appreciate the Gorilla glass construction of this filter as well. The tougher and more durable a filter is, and the more scratch resistance it has, the better! In other words, though I had my doubts about these filters and filter holder, once I got them and used them, I quickly realized that they are made to last, work great, and helped me get better results.
They can do the same for you, too! The problem with that is that it can make your photo look a little boring because it's the same perspective from which everyone sees that landscape. Instead, find a higher vantage point to shoot down towards the landscape or use a drone, as shown above , or, conversely, kneel down or lay down on the ground and shoot up towards the landscape.
Utilizing these bird's eye and worm's eye points of view are among the easiest tips for how to improve landscape photos. A benefit of dropping down for a low-angle shot as recommended in the previous point is that you can incorporate more foreground. By doing so, you can give your landscape photos more depth and make them feel more like three-dimensional representations of the landscape.
Foreground elements can be anything from rocks and boulders to flowers or other plants. You can even use the textures created by wind in the sand or patterns created by the arrangement of rocks in a stream. The point is that having interesting objects in the foreground will help draw viewers into the shot and drive their eyes deeper toward the background. Speaking of creating depth, using leading lines is an excellent way to give your landscape photos a feeling of being three-dimensional. That's because our eyes naturally like lines, so when you incorporate them into your landscape photos, people will immediately follow them with their eyes.
Leading lines connect the foreground to the background and take viewers on a journey through the landscape. Leading lines don't have to be overt like a road or a fence. Instead, even faint lines created by an old hiking trail or something of the sort will serve well as a leading line. Golden hour gets all the glory in landscape photography tips and tutorials, but blue hour isn't too shabby.
The cool tones associated with blue hour are far more calm and gentle than those you find earlier in the day. That can help you create gorgeously serene shots like the one shown above. Blue hour occurs before sunrise and after sunset, and really only lasts about minutes depending on the time of year and your location.
But even though it's fleeting, shooting at blue hour can help you capture some impressive scenes! Earlier, I mentioned that adding foreground interest is a great way to create a photo with more depth. By incorporating something in the foreground like the tree in the image above, you help drive the viewer's eyes deeper into the shot. What's more, if used correctly, a frame can help make the primary subject stronger, too, much like the rock formation in the image above does for the people posed behind it.
Not only does a tripod give your camera a more stable base for getting sharper photos, but it also helps you slow things down and concentrate more on things like composition, framing, and the perspective from which you shoot. Some tripods even have inverted center columns that allow you to frame up shots close to the ground, which helps you incorporate foreground interest.
And today's tripods are so lightweight that you can easily take one with you on virtually any outing. Use this and the other landscape photography tips outlined above, and you'll be on your way to taking much better landscape photos. Their revival, in our time, is not a step forward but a step backward; it is a return to distinctly heathen and anti-Christian beliefs and practices and additional evidence of the fact that the world is once more relapsing into paganism.

The consciousness of the man is dominated, not stimulated. The idea implanted by the angel Many a one a human is overshadowed by a Higher Being an angel who is not conscious of the source of the thoughts that come into his mind Ideals, those fixed ideas that guide and control conduct, constantly come from the overshadowing power It is through this process of thought-tranference by which: Blavatsky who was incidently the daughter of a Russian army colonel describes the thought-transference process as she experienced it: In saying this no supernatural claim is urged, for no miracle is performed by such a dictation.
See The Knowledge of Wisdom by John of the Gentiles , and that other mind and brain have also to be either voluntarily thrown into the same unison or fall into it voluntarily. So though the Adept angel be at Bombay and his human friend in New York, the distance is no obstacle, as the inner senses are not dependent on an ear, but may feel and see the thoughts and images in the mind of the other person.

Moses, who was learned in all the wisdom of Egypt, [as] first initiated into the Kabala in the land of his birth, but became most proficient in it during his wanderings in the wilderness, when he not only devoted to it the leisure hours of the whole forty years, but received lessons in it from one of the angels.

The Platonists and the Pythagoreans took it from the Egyptians, and the latter from Joseph the Saviour, and from the Hebrews who dwelt in Egypt before the crossing of the Red Sea.

The Offspring of these Women were of three sorts: The first race were Giants, or Tall Men: They instructed their Wives and Children in Sorcery and Enchantments.
The Ninth revealed the Course of the Stars astronomy. The Fourth the Science of Astrology. The Eighth the Inspection of the Air. The Third of the Earth. The Seventh of the Sun. The Giants soon after began to feed upon Human Flesh, which made the number of Men to decrease, and sensibly to decay.
Semiazas Thou hast ordained to be the Prince of those who are about him; but they have all turned themselves to the Daughters of the Men of the Earth, and polluting themselves with Women have discovered to them all the Methods of Impiety, and instructed them to perpetrate all degrees of Abomination: And now, behold, the Daughters of Men have born a Gigantic Offspring to them; a foul Blemish of Corruption has infected the whole Earth, and the World is full of Injustice.

In medieval times these virgin Queens of the May were often impregnated during magic pagan sexual fertility rites Hiero Gamos Rituals which ceremoniously commemorated the sexual union of Azazel and his human wife. The tradition of dancing around a May-pole is a scene often depicted in early American art as May Day was a popular holy-day in Colonial America.
With these European colonists and settlers came various pagan religious traditions Magic traditions and Christian practices often went side by side, with some individuals thereby masking their wholly pagan inclinations through a veil of Christianity colonial Christianity often consisted of a pagan-Christian amalgamation as well and through the employment of other sorts of secularized lore to avoid wholesale persecutions, often involving a brutal death by the overzealous Inquisitions of the Roman Catholic Church.
This fact notwithstanding, witchcraft was not an uncommon practice in early colonial America, and many individuals suffered during the infamous Salem Witch Trials of A. Estimates of the number of lives surrendered to the Inquisition runs from the hundreds of thousands to the millions.
The illustrious Puritan Cotton Mather A. Witch bottles were folkloric cures meant to counter the malevolent effects of the spells of black-magic practicing witches, often employed by cunning men and women.

As also must be noted, by one definition, a python is a demon. As we learn from S. Dunlap in Vestiges of the SpiritHistory of Man, p. Serapis was also known as Osiris Apis. Indeed, as related by Plutarch in On Osiris and Isis, priests performed ceremonies in which the god Apis is ritually buried, thereby commemorating the entombment of Azazel represented by Apis , within the earth, within his cherubic tomb.
These ritual burial places were located in underground temples dedicated to the god Serapis, called a Serapeum. The god Serapis is at times depicted as being crowned with a modius, which is an Egyptian corn measure.

Dragons and serpents are common Biblical terms for the cherubim of the angels, and most specifically the cherubim of Azazel and Satan. In Hindu-Buddhist beliefs, naga are celestial dragons often able to take human form. This is based on the story of the incarnation of the celestial serpent Azazel and of the angels who accompanied him who also came to this Earth in human form. In European folklore dragons are said to inhabit underground lairs.
Contrary to popular belief, angels are capable of sin. Nobody is perfect, not even the angels of heaven: This is because they speak of the same characters and occurrences, being differing versions of the very same story, much in the way the game Telephone is played, where as time wore on the versions changed in compliance with local societal norms and individual interpretations and assertions.

Spells were employed in an effort to control the jinn and to enslave them and as protection against them.

The people of the world will marvel when they see Azazel in his cherub upon his release: Azazel upon his release will be hailed as the long-awaited Jewish Messiah himself: Azazel will emerge to rule once more.

Leadbeater in Glimpses of Masonic History: That great Teacher of mankind passed from human sight as For the influence of the sixth ray, the ray of devotion which inspired the Christian mystics such as Roman Catholic Bishop St. Albertus Magnus and his student, the Dominican priest St. Thomas Aquinas, as well as Jacob Bohme and Emmanuel Kant and the glorious Gothic architecture of the Middle Ages is passing away, and the seventh ray is beginning to dominate the world - the ray of ceremonial magic which brings the especial cooperation of the Angelic hosts, of which Masonry itself with its many coloured pageant of rites is a splendid manifestation.
Concerning the following, Ms. Besant is gravely mistaken, and greatly deceived: Put in another phrase, that Mighty One whom you speak of as the Christ is the same individual as the Buddhist speaks of as the Bodhisattva. You are worshipping the same individual, although perhaps most in both the religions would feel offended at the idea. When talking not very long ago with a Buddhist monk, I told him that the Bodhisattva - the Lord Maitreya - was the same as the Christian Lord Christ, and he was shocked at the idea; to him it was a blasphemy; just as it may be to some of you but a blasphemy to think that the One whom you reverence as the Christ is worshipped under another name in eastern lands.
But to me, it is one of the most beautiful of things to think that the millions of the Buddhist world who bow the knee to the Bodhisattva send up their love and their prayers to the same mighty Being as the One to whom the millions of Christendom bow down in homage. To realise that both are worshipping the same mighty One seems to me so fair a thing; religions are nearer than they dream, and worshippers are joined in prayers although distinct in the names to which those prayers are addressed.
Surely it is a greater thing, a gladder thing, to know that your Christ is worshipped by myriads who have never heard His Name; for to Him all prayers to the God-Man go up, and it matters not whether they name the Lord Maitreya, the Lord Krishna, the Lord Christ; they are but three names of One who presides over all, and who leads His children, to whatever faith they belong. Compare to Nigel Jackson, who also works in preparation for the coming reign of Azazel: As we learn from Hargrave Jennings in The Rosicrucians: The Eleventh Hour A crescent-shaped quarter moon takes place at the occult 11th hour on July 26, A.

The location where Azazel is imprisoned, and from which place he is later released, is identified in Revelations 9: Both Ur and Eridu were located along the Euphrates River note the etymological similarities between Eridu and Duidain.
All natural and astral conditions favoured an immediate identification of the goddess with the newly risen star Sirius. It is probable that the Sumerians ended the festival of the Tammuz wailings by a feast of joy and gladness when Sirius rose on the eastern horizon on July 19th. In Egypt, it the Pyramid of Gizah was used to represent the tomb of the god Thoth who was the equivalent of the Greek god Hermes and the Roman god Mercury.
This belief originated in the land of Sumer. Likely such a ziggurat was erected over the area where Azazel lay entrapped. And likely this was the Biblical Tower of Babel. This tower was built over the site where Azazel was interred within the Earth, built beneath the site where had come to rest the Majestic Glory of God, the mighty magnificent mother-ship! Spells are used to control them and to enslave them or as protection against them.
This knowledge he brought with him to Germany, and armed therewith he established the Rosicrucian Society which was dedicated to this goal, circa A. Martin Luther officially split with the Roman Catholic Church with his posting of the famous 95 Thesis, a decidedly key event in the Churches storied decline.

Witch-bottles have been found on both sides of the Atlantic in America and Europe. Anyways, it is said Aleister Crowley was an initiate of such an English cunning man named George Pickingill. In his book Liber
