Everything You Need to Know About Manual Mode for Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is made for manual mode, as you have the time to evaluate exactly how you want to expose the frame, both from a creative and technical standpoint. If you are newer to photography and feeling a bit overwhelmed by interpreting and managing all the parameters and settings that go into it, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you everything you need to know about using manual mode for landscape photography. 

Coming to you from Mads Peter Iversen, this great video tutorial will show you everything you need to know about using manual mode for landscape photography, from setting the white balance, through using tools like the histogram, and on to exposure settings. A lot of people start out with something like aperture priority mode, and that is perfectly fine, but the neat thing about landscape photography is how you can take the same composition in several different creative directions depending on how you balance the exposure settings (particularly when you start to add in ND filters). For that, manual mode is the best choice, rather than asking the camera to guess at what you are thinking creatively. You'll be glad you learned it. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Iversen.
