Learn How This Landscape Image Was Shot and Edited

Creating a successful landscape photograph is just as much about your post-processing technique as it is about the process of shooting it. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to shoot and edit a landscape image from start to finish.

Coming to you from Andy Mumford, this great video tutorial will show you how he shot an image from the process of composition through post-processing. One thing that is always important to remember is to not go overboard with your editing. Landscape work is frequently conducive to this pitfall, especially when it comes to saturation and color-toning. Generally, it is better to err on the side of doing less with edits. One way to make sure you have not gone too far is to take a minute to step away from your computer after you have finished an edit to allow your eyes to reset, then return to your computer to evaluate the image one more time before you export it. You'll often end up wanting to pull back your edit just a bit. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Mumford!

Personally, I like the shot before he did all the post processing....

Me, too. Is it just me, or did this feel like a Bob Ross "Happy Trees" episode?
