How to Get Great Landscape Photos Even in Bad Light and Weather

One of the most challenging aspects of landscape photography is that we have no control over the light or the conditions. And while bad light and weather can be frustrating to experience, you should not let them stop you from making photos. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to create compelling landscape images even when the light and weather are not cooperating. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler - Landscape Photography, this great video tutorial will show you how to handle bad light and weather in landscape photography. No doubt, less-than-ideal conditions and light can be a hindrance when you have certain shots in mind, but that does not mean you can't come home with worthwhile photos. Really, any light or weather can be worked with. The key is to create images that the conditions are conducive to rather than trying to work against them. While planning in advance can be great, you should be willing to stay flexible in case things don't go as predicted. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irmler.
