When you see great landscape photos, you probably notice that most of them show scenes lit by gorgeous sun and graced by beautiful weather, but of course, the reality is that the weather does not always cooperate that much, and for many of us, it rarely does. This excellent video discusses the importance of embracing poor weather as a landscape photographer.
Coming to you from Steve O'Nions, this great video talks about the importance of learning to work with bad weather as opposed to working around it or avoiding it entirely. While sunshine and partly cloudy skies are what we would all love to head out into, conditions do not always cooperate. And certainly, it can be less pleasant to trudge through wind and rain, but these conditions can often create more interesting photos, particularly since we are used to seeing something else. I think it is important to learn not to try to recreate nicer conditions when the weather is not cooperating; rather, we should embrace what we're given and make photos that show off the environment. Check out the video above to see what O'Nions did.
