Landscape photography, like any other genre, is full of its own myths and misconceptions about how it's done and what a photographer needs to be successful. Here are some of the most common delusions about landscape photography.
Coming to you from Craig Roberts of e6 Vlogs, this great video talks about some common misconceptions that might be holding you back, and though he focuses on landscape photography, many of them apply equally well to other genres. In addition to the many great points he makes, I would also mention the myth that you always have to shoot around sunrise or sunset. There's certainly no denying that these times of day do indeed provide beautiful light and often interesting skies that make for great photos, but that doesn't mean they're the only times you should take photos. Even harsh midday sun can provide a light that emphasizes certain subjects in a unique and fascinating way that's well worth exploring. The key is to not try to turn midday shots into golden hour shots and instead approach them by embracing the light you've been given and exploring its stronger qualities. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips.
