Have You Ever Tried Remote Landscape Photography?

Remote photography can be really useful in a lot of situations, but rarely is it used in landscape photography. Nonetheless, it can be quite useful, and this fun video will show you what you can accomplish with it. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler - Landscape Photography, this neat video takes you behind the scenes of remote landscape photography. In this case, Irmler presses his wife into service as his "remote hands," but of course, you can use actual remote controls as well. I do this a lot when photographing concerts; I will put a camera close to the stage to get shots without disturbing the performer. I never thought about using it for landscape photography, but it makes a lot of sense. Every sunset and sunrise is unique, and if you want to get multiple perspectives at the same time, you have to get a bit clever. Remote triggers, intervalometers, or a pair of helping hands are all options. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irmler.

And if you really want to dive into landscape photography, check out "Photographing The World 1: Landscape Photography and Post-Processing with Elia Locardi," which is currently on sale along with the rest of the Fstoppers store!

I hate it when people send me a link to video about something. About 99% of the time I don't watch it, if I can tell from the link that it's a video I won't even click it. Everyone seems to think watching a video is easier but I'd much rather read an article about whatever it is.
