If you feel like your landscape photos are good, but could use a boost to get to the next level, this is the right video for you.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this great video discusses how to take your good landscape photos and make them even better. For me, once I became reasonably technically proficient and better able to form coherent creative thoughts in my photography, I plateaued a bit for a while. The thing that helped me start to improve again was considering my composition from an opposite perspective. Whereas I spent a lot of time deciding what to put in the frame and how to arrange it, I got better once I started considering what to take out of the frame. In other words, I began asking myself if every element was absolutely crucial to the image, or if I could make the subject more compelling by decluttering the image more. I learned to do things like remove errant tree branches from the edge of my photos and found my images improved quite a bit. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips from Danson.
