You Can Create Great Landscape Photos in Any Conditions

Of course, it would be great if the weather would cooperate every time we went out to take photos, but that simply is not going to happen, and if you avoid creating images whenever the conditions are not ideal, you are going to lead a frustrating career as a photographer. This great video tutorial is an important reminder that even in terrible conditions, you can create compelling images. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler - Landscape Photography, this excellent video shows you that no matter the conditions, you can create worthwhile photos. The key to working in bad or unexpected conditions is to be willing to go with the flow. It is a great to plan ahead, but if the images you are looking for are not developing due to the conditions, don't try to force them into existence. Rather, be willing to be flexible and create photos that the light and conditions are conducive to. Not only will this save you a lot of frustration, it will help you expand both your portfolio and your creative eye. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irmler.
