Can You Take Great Landscape Photos at Any Location?

If you look at a lot of the most popular landscape photography on something like Instagram, you will probably notice that many of the images that come up tend to be from a few popular locations. Does that mean you can only create worthwhile photos only at those well-known images? This great video tutorial features an experienced landscape photographer discussing the issue and showing you some of the potential even ordinary places have. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler - Landscape Photography, this awesome video tutorial discusses the issue of creating landscape images in common locations. I think this is something really important. It can be easy to focus on finding the most epic locations, but these have drawbacks. First, they are so overly photographed that it can be difficult to distinguish your work there. On top of that, by working with locations where the images are not as obvious, you will do a lot more good for developing your creative eye, making you a far more versatile photographer. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irmler.
