Helpful Advice and Philosophies for Better Landscape Photography

Landscape photography is both a wonderful experience and challenging genre, and it helps to always absorb new perspectives, advice, and philosophies to continue to grow and improve. If you would like to make your work better, check out this fantastic video tutorial that features an experienced landscape photographer sharing a wide range of advice and perspective sure to put you on the right track.

Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this insightful video shares a wealth of advice and perspective on landscape photography. I particularly appreciated Benn encouraging his participants to not avoid "bad light," but rather to embrace it and work with it. Sure, a lot of people aim for that warm, golden hour light, but you can make worthwhile landscape images in any kind of light. The key is to embrace the sort of photos the light is conducive to rather than trying to work against the light and force a certain idea into existence, which rarely yields good shots and often leaves you frustrated. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
