Creating a successful landscape image takes a variety of skills, some that don't even involve a camera. If you want to get on the road to success, check out this great video tutorial that will help you frame your approach to landscape photography through three major aspects.
Coming to you from Landscape Photography iQ with Tom Mackie, this great video offers three important aspects of landscape photography and how to employ them for your own work. Of the three, I think the most important for me is planning. Time and again, the thing I notice about the world's top landscape photographers is just how much of their work is done before they ever walk out the door. Many of the best landscape photographers have the practice down to a science and know exactly what to expect and how they will tackle it before they arrive. Sure, it is a lot of fun to just go for a hike with your camera and see what happens, but if you really want to maximize the potential of a scene, consider planning ahead more. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Mackie.
