How to Edit Your Landscape Photos With Pure Freedom

There is more information on how to edit your photos available than ever before, and while that is certainly a great thing for anyone who wants to improve as a photographer, it can lead to using someone else's editing habits and techniques rather than developing your own creative voice. If that is something you struggle with, this excellent video tutorial will help you find more creative freedom in your edits. 

Coming to you from Alister Benn with Expressive Photography, this great video tutorial discusses how to find more freedom in your photo edits. It can be easy to fall into a formulaic approach when editing your images, but it is important to remember that each photo is unique and demands an individualized approach if you want to maximize your potential and develop a strong creative voice. Perhaps it is a bit counterintuitive, but really mastering all your techniques is one of the keys to this. As Picasso said: "Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist." Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn. 

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.

Unfortunately almost every landscape image has been edited with unabated freedom so much so that they are in actuality the digital machine operators "vision" of what the scene was. I recall a saying in the early days of computers GIGO garbage in garbage out. FRANKENPHOTOS are not photography rather a distorted view of reality.

And when was photography defined as "the most accurate view of reality"? Unless you are making passport photographs or forensic photography....
