Tips for Better Time Management and Decision-Making in Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is a strange genre when it comes to time management, and it can lead to some difficult decisions when it comes to committing to a location or moving on to somewhere else. This great video discusses some helpful tips for improving your time management and decision-making in landscape photography.

Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this helpful video discusses some of his tips for time management and decision-making. One of the trickiest parts of landscape photography is the fact that you do not have control of the light or elements, unlike pretty much any other genre. This frequently leads to situations in which you might be waiting for the conditions to change, such as hoping clouds will clear. And while you can do a lot to reduce the probability of ending up in a conundrum of this sort by engaging in careful preparation (such as using local weather forecasts and planning apps, like The Photographer's Ephemeris), there is still always an element of chance. Check out the video above for lots of helpful information from Danson.

I’m not sure if his message was a good one or not as it was totally lost in the very nice visuals of the film that dominated. Some really great drone shots but.......... Rule 1 of making a film is know your story then tell it clearly. It’s ironic as the film was supposed to be on effective time management, so it’s a pity this message was not applied when making the film. A seventeen minute film that could have been so much better if had been three minutes.
