Mark’s Quick Tips: Luck favors the prepared Landscape Photographer

Do you ever wonder how those amazing landscape shots are pulled off? Most likely, they’re not created by the lucky opportunist, pulling off the highway during a mid-day road trip.

They come about by someone who does careful research and planning. Conversely, if it’s a quickly developing opportunity, they know what to do right away with focused attention. These photographers have the experience and gear selected for his or her creative pre-vision and can tap into it quickly. They know what lens to use and what aperture. They have a solid tripod adjusted and ready. They can quickly gather all the elements before them that are needed to create an amazing landscape shot.

Proper equipment is important, as is knowing its form and function. But as with any creative process, knowing and using the rules of composition are the creative cornerstone. Knowing how to use them as tools, as well as using all of the above effectively, combined with a little luck, will favor the prepared landscape photographer.

All the best,

Mark Jansen
