In this week’s episode, we discuss the best camera settings for landscape photography. This topic is a somewhat difficult one as there isn’t a universal answer to the question “what’s the best settings for landscape photography?”. There’s many constantly changing variables to account for when it comes to determining the best camera settings to use. What I hope you’re able to get out of this week’s episode is a workflow that you can apply the next time you’re on-location that’ll help you determine the best settings for your landscape photography.

In this video, I share the five question workflow I ask myself while on-location that helps me determine the best camera settings for the landscape photography situation I happen to be in. This workflow has simplified the decision making process for me and most importantly has enabled me to feel confident that I’ve selected the best camera settings. Light and weather conditions change quickly while on a landscape photography trip. It’s easy to miss one of the many variables that require consideration and having an organized and repeatable process related to selecting camera settings is of the utmost importance.

I hope this episode provides you with a simple workflow that you can apply to your next landscape photography trip that’ll enable you to feel more confident that you’ve selected the best settings for the photography scenario you’re in!

    Lol. 50000? Now you are at 105000 Mark. Such a great teacher and a very humble person. God bless you man. You taught me a lot.

    I understand what you’re trying to do and say here however before you even get to taking a photograph you should;

    A. Already know how to use your camera completely. Know how aperture affects depth of field and also know how to focus properly to achieve the best result for a given aperture. Picking random apertures is not the way to hone the skill of photography.

    2. It’s also best practice to scout a location first so you know what you want from a photograph. Whether it is sun location, bet time of year/day etc. Turning up somewhere not having a clue is again not the thing to do.
    If you’re on holiday or visiting somewhere try visit the place first. If not and the light is not right then don’t take the photo. Another problem with digital photographers is they think they should take a photo just because they can.

    I subscribed to this channel simply cuz it teaches me how to become a better photographer. And I've unsubscribed from other channels like Tony Northrop and others cuz those channels waste my time prating about stupid, irrelevant things

    Hi Mark, love your videos, I am keen to learn the nuances of landscape photography.
    I am curious as to your thoughts on hyperfocal distances, expose to the right and focus stacking in landscape photography. I understand that all settings in photography involve compromise, ISO vs shutter speed vs aperture etc.
    Maybe a set of topics for a future video?
    Thanks for your efforts,
