This year is the year I really want to fine tune everything I have learnt about landscape photography up until now. I feel like my composition is my biggest issue, this I really need to concentrate on more when setting up my shots.Along with that I need to take more photos… that may sound strange but basically I am a 1 shot type of guy, see my subject, see the shot, take the shot and then walk away. Instead I should walk around the subject where possible and check for more angles and also differences in background/foreground items.
Tripod, now this is something I really do need to glue to the bottom of my camera, I am very guilty of being lazy and just hand holding nearly every landscape shot I have taken. This is in part to do with being self-conscious for some silly reason and also to do with being lazy, both things I need to get over and get on with.
Landscapes are my passion and the main area where I really want to become proficient and comfortable. Concentrating on our local surrounding areas is a good place to start and really get our teeth into, but with our holiday planned to be in Wales again this year I want to be in good habits before the trip as I can’t just pop back and take them again.
So with filters cleaned, lenses packed and tripod at the ready let’s get the year underway and see what we can get.
