Everyone’s seen the pictures, the truly amazing landscape photographers have taken and thought about just how they managed to be so lucky to get that picture. You know the ones I’m talking about, the photo with the perfect blue water or the photo which has a gorgeous waterfall with a rainbow above it. Well you know what? Those photos have virtually nothing to do with luck and more about persistence as well as hard work. So what must you do to ensure that you too get those fantastic photos?

Step 1 – Research:

If you would like amazing shots you have to do a great deal of research. You need to spend more time every week researching new and existing locations than you do taking any photos. Rather than going to a location that you are pondering photographing at exactly sunset, consider getting there an hour and a half prior to sunset and take a good stroll around the area. Take a few test shots of the location and see how they look, lie down on the ground as well as climb up to a high place to see what it looks like from a various perspectives.

Another great technique once you have chosen a location and are setup would be to turn around and look behind you, there has been many times when the shot I in fact ended up taking was in fact behind me.

If you have found a location to capture your landscape photograph and you want another perspective on that location try finding how others have shot that location. Keep in mind don’t copy how others took the photo, but certainly utilize it to see how other people see it.

Speak with people who hike, these people are a truly amazing supply of information and get to areas most of us would never consider.

Once you get to an area that you think may be an excellent candidate work out if it’s a morning shoot or an evening shoot, then go for it and shoot it. Keep in mind weather always plays a significant part in landscape photography and if you don’t get great conditions the first time around, keep going back again until the magic happens.

Step 2 – Persistence:

Many people go to an area a few times and give up when they don’t get the conditions they desire. You have to keep going back and trying various angles as well as shooting it in various conditions until you get the photo you want to achieve, just don’t give up. Getting great landscape photographs is all about hard work and very little luck.

So start researching your locations then get out there and start shooting, you will find yourself capturing amazing landscapes before you know it.
