How to Choose Camera Settings for Landscape Photography

The neat thing about landscape photography is that any single subject can be rendered in many different ways simply by your choice of settings and more. So, how do you know which settings to choose for a specific shot? This excellent video tutorial discusses what to think about when you are deciding which camera settings to use.

Coming to you from Photo Tom, this great video tutorial discusses how to choose the right camera settings for landscape photos. The settings you choose can make a big difference in the final rendering of the photo, but unfortunately, many of us choose them through either experimentation or by following standard landscape photography tropes. And while that will sometimes produce perfectly fine photos, if you want to really discover your individual creative voice, it is better to preconceive the image you want and match the settings to that, rather than letting the photo be a consequence of the settings you happen upon — not that experimentation can't be fruitful. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
