Are you dreaming about shooting those magic landscapes that you see on the internet. If so, then please have a read here as I share some tips in planning your next landscape photography outing.
Shooting the best landscape images is more than just being in the right place at the right time, there is lots of planning involved. sometimes this begins months in advance to make sure you are there at the right time, of course this could mean that the so called right time is not the perfect time and you need to wait another year or month to get the right conditions for the image you have in mind. If you battle with patience, the I highly recommend that you teach yourself to be more patient, because if you cannot be patient you will battle with perfecting the shooting of landscapes. In many cases the same spot needs to be shot a couple of times before you finally get that one cracker image we all chase and dream about.
Where to start?
Well that is a good question. It will depend on the subject you want to shoot. If you know you are going to visit a particular holiday destination and would like to go out and capture something nice, i would recommend you start with Google. I would Google the attractions of a specific town or place. This will give you a good idea of where to start. Some places has many attractions, so it will all boil down to how much time you have, how many of the things do you actually want to shoot, how many of the items are actually worth shooting and then off course the weather. The same would go for if you are planning a trip around shooting landscapes. I am currently planning a trip to Namibia and when choosing locations it is vital that you know where you want to go and what you want to shoot.
