5 Common Mistakes in Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is a tricky genre to master, but it is highly rewarding when you get things right and you are able to produce a compelling photo. This excellent video discusses five common mistakes landscape photographers make or traps they fall into and how to avoid or remedy them.

Coming to you from Photo Tom, this awesome video discusses five common mistakes made in landscape photography and how to fix them. One point made by the video that I think is especially worth taking note of is not shooting only at sunrise or sunset. Sure, golden hour is revered by photographers for a good reason, but it is only a small fraction of each day, and every other time of day can yield great photos. The idea is to work with the light you are given at the moment instead of trying to create images that you might have in mind but that the current light is not conducive to. Each type of light can make for different but equally good photos. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
