Coming to you from Matt Zefi with B&H Photo and Video, this great video tutorial offers 10 tips for improving your landscape photography. If I could give one piece of advice to new landscape photographers, it would be to bring along a lens like a 70-200mm. We tend to default to wide angle lenses for landscape work out of the desire to fit as much of the scene into the frame as possible, but that doesn't always translate to the image, particularly in more visually complex areas. Using a longer focal length to isolate elements of the landscape can lead to more direct and stronger photos. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Zefi.
