A Beginner's Guide to Editing Landscape Photos

When it comes to landscape photography, rarely is the photo finished the moment you press the shutter; most landscape images require some degree of processing in order to produce a polished product. If you are new to the genre and ready to improve your images, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you the ins and outs of how to edit your first photos. 

Coming to you from Mark Denney, this awesome video tutorial will show you the basics of how to edit landscape photos. By far, the best piece of advice I could give to someone new to editing landscape shots is that less is more. It can be very easy to take things overboard, causing your images to end up looking overly processed and artificial. This is particularly the case with modern editing programs, where extreme edits can be performed with just a few clicks. Generally, erring on the side of doing less will help you to build a good eye for subtlety and the right amount of processing. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Denney.
