How Managing Color Can Improve Your Landscape Photos

When it comes to landscape photography, we often talk about things like exposure settings, lens choice, use of filters, managing conditions, and more. But one thing we do not talk about as much is color, and yet, it is one of the most powerful aspects of any landscape photograph. This great video tutorial will show you how careful management of color can make your landscape images better and offer some helpful tips for making that happen.

Coming to you from Christian Irmler - Landscape Photography, this excellent video tutorial will show you the ins and outs of leveraging color to improve the quality of your landscape photos. While color is one of the most powerful tools for not only creating compelling images, but developing a recognizable personal style, the important thing to remember when working with it in post-processing is that less is more. It is very easy to go overboard and end up with something that is gaudy or overly artificial, so it's good as a general priciple to err on the side of doing less. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irmler.
