Landscape photography is a weird genre: there are no people, and unlike something like product photography, it’s pretty much up to you to choose what to shoot and how to shoot it. So, it can often feel a bit nebulous as to how one navigates a world veritably inundated with imagery, particularly when standards are sky-high. This helpful video will give you some great pointers to get you on your way.
Coming to you from Thomas Heaton, this video details some of his best tips for becoming a successful landscape photographer. For me, the two most important pointers were about quality vs. quantity and shooting iconic locations. First, I think it’s so overwhelmingly important to showcase only your best work, not only to maintain your reputation, but as Heaton mentions, to build excitement when you do post, because your audience knows it’s of high quality. Second, I think he makes a great point about exploring your home area and being careful when shooting iconic locations. You can take a technically perfect shot from the ideal location of Antelope Canyon or the Eiffel Tower, but the truth is that thousands of people before you have taken the same image just as well, so find a new angle or better yet, a new location. Don’t overlook what’s already around you.
