How to Process Your Landscape Images Creatively and Efficiently

Rarely is a landscape photo finished the moment you press the shutter; almost every such image requires some degree of post-processing to create the finished product. It is easy to get a bit mired in the editing phase, though, finding yourself pushing sliders back and forth as you experiment and try to create the best possible version of an image you know has potential in it. How can you be creative but stay efficient? This excellent video tutorial will show you what you need to know. 

Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this great video tutorial will show you how to be more efficient when post-processing landscape photos without losing your creative spark. If you are anything like me, you probably sometimes find yourself working on a photo sometimes, feeling a bit unsure of where to take it, only to blink and suddenly realize you have been editing the same image for the last 30 minutes. It is a frustrating thing to experience, but a lot of the time, it can be fixed by working on planning your shots in advance more, so you know exactly what you need to do in post. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
