Rarely is a compelling landscape photo made entirely in camera; the majority of such images require at least some degree of editing to be complete, and this is your chance to show off both your technique and your creative vision. So, how do you actually approach the edit? This fantastic video tutorial features an experienced landscape photographer discussing how to edit your images properly.
Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this excellent video discusses how to properly edit your photos. I think Benn is on to something when he discusses the importance of not falling prey to the idea of a singular “professional” approach. No doubt, your technique should be strong, but this should not pigeonhole you into one processing style, lest you find yourself with images that look like hundreds of thousands of others. Rather, strong technique gives you the ability to realize whatever creative vision you have in your head. It is important not to conflate technique with style. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
