Landscape photography isn’t just about aiming your camera at something pretty and pressing the shutter button.
Instead, good landscape photography requires that you develop the scene, compose the shot such that you guide viewers through it, and tell a story about what you’ve captured.
If that sounds hard to do, it is!
Becoming a master photographer takes a lot of time, patience, and practice, but there are steps you can take that will make that journey shorter and more fruitful.
Below, I’ve outlined a few of my favorite ways to improve your landscape photography.
Photograph the Same Subject at Different Times of Day
I have a few favorite photography spots I like to visit, and I find that I tend to visit them at the same time of day each time.
Part of that is due to scheduling, but even on the weekends when I’m free, I go to the same places at the same time and take very similar-looking shots.
An easy way to change things up for you and me both is to try visiting your favorite photography spots at different points throughout the day.
