When it comes to landscape photography, planning can make a huge difference in your ability to come home with the exact image you have been dreaming of, but almost paradoxically, you need to be able to remain flexible as well. This great video discusses why being willing to change plans on the fly can benefit your work.
Coming to you from Chris Sale, this excellent video discusses the importance of being flexible in landscape photography. Planning makes a huge difference in landscape photography, as it allows you to plan your images to match the conditions you are likely to encounter. On the other hand, Mother Nature does not always cooperate, and weather forecasts are not always accurate. When this happens, instead of trying to force the images you had planned into fruition, try to be willing to improvise and adapt your photos to what the weather at hand is conducive to. If you can do this, not only are you more likely to come home with worthwhile photos, you are more likely to enjoy the experience. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sale.
