A Guide To Finding Fantasy Landscape Photos

By Linda Cantrell

The fantasy genre has a number of iconic images. As well as the monsters, elves and other fantastic creatures one of the major things people remember are the vivid worlds created in the genre. If you would like something displayed on your wall it is worth looking online for fantasy landscape photos.

Another thing that people tend to think of when they think of fantasy is something for children. Indeed a lot of the great images people tend to think of comes from fairy tales. The term fairy tale tends to evoke an idea of cuteness and something that comes from a cartoon.

However this does not necessarily have to be the case. People often forget that the original stories from writers such as the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Anderson are often a lot darker than their subsequent adaptations. Therefore the imagery can often be quite dark and disturbing as well.

This means you can get some very evocative imagery. Dark caves and caverns are often quite grand and provide the perfect backdrop for someone who wants something strange and unusual on their walls. These tend to be very far from the cute images that people associate with fairy tales.

Typical images people tend to think of are floating castles or iconic and grand statues and sculptures that could not possibly exist in real life or alternatively would be so difficult to create that people would not put the effort into building them. It is also possible to use lighting effects to create stylistic choices that people would not be able to do with photos of images in real life.

There is also the issue of where you purchase these from. In some cases people will look specifically for items from their favourite books, television shows and so forth. If you want something official that has been approved by the creators or the estates of creators then it is best to look for officially sanctioned websites.

In other cases it is more about looking online and checking the images. There are a wide array of places you could get them. They can be found in art stores, galleries and on websites. If you attend conventions the artists will often sell themselves and may even be willing to sign them for you!

It is also worth finding feedback forums online. Talking with fantasy enthusiasts about their favourite landscape photos will allow you to learn more about the best ones available and where to find them. It may be possible to find the next big fantasy artist or simply find images that you will love and want to share. Use your regular search engine in order to find images as well as finding out more about the stories behind those images and the artists that made them.
