Landscape photography has a lot of potential pitfalls to it, and it takes the confluence of a variety of techniques and creative ideas to make a successful image. This great video details seven common mistakes landscape photographers commonly make and how you can avoid and/or fix them.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this helpful video discusses seven common mistakes landscape photographers make and what you can do to fix them. Of them, I think one of the most common is using the wrong light. I firmly believe that all light is good light in landscape photography; in other words, I think that you can make great photos no matter what the light is, but the key is learning to read the light and make photos that it is conducive to. It can be easy to fall into the trap of looking at a scene and visualizing a certain composition, but if the light does not work with that composition, then the image will not be successful. Of course, the beauty of landscape photography is that you can plan for when the light works for what you want. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
