Travel and landscape photography has always been popular, but since everybody now has a camera in their pocket and many are also choosing to take things further with a DSLR or mirrorless camera, it’s really taken off. Finding information on travel or landscape photography isn’t exactly difficult, but Taylor Jackson has combined all his knowledge into this three-hour “Ultimate” travel and landscape tutorial video.
There is a plethora of very talented landscape photographers out in the field these days, both hobbyists and professionals alike. The following is a collection of some of them, and may you enjoy their talent, craftsmanship and dedication to the genre.
Every time you spot your mistake and try to fix it, your knowledge and skill improve. However, there are some mistakes you might be repeatedly making without being aware of it. Mark Denney talks about them in his latest video, highlighting the five biggest mistakes you might be making when editing landscape images.
Tyrifjorden is one of Norway’s largest lakes. Along its shores I have found a spot which I have visited frequently the past years. It has become my favorite location for sunrises especially during winter when the sun rises right in front of me. The images included cover a stretch of roughly twenty meter of rather photogenic rocks. Due to various water levels, snow, perspective and other factors almost every image has a unique quality in spite of being shot at the same place.
A while ago Sigma joined the L mount alliance along with Panasonic and Leica. Although it wasn’t really till recently that we started to see the true results of this collaboration when Sigma released their new fp camera. They also released several “designed for mirrorless” lenses like the 14-24 f2.8 Art DG DN. Those lenses are both smaller and lighter than their DSLR counterparts.
One of the new features of the 14-24f2.8 Art DG DN lens is the built-in rear filter holder. It allows you to lock in a gel filter, which you can cut using the template provided with the lens.
This is a relatively inexpensive way to reduce the amount of light coming into the camera. I used to cut ND gels to fit into my MC-11 adaptor and while they worked, the gels could easily scratch, bend and crease, while also reducing image quality a little. I don’t know, maybe it was the particular ND gel I used.
What if you wanted something that is more durable with better optical performance, but without needing a huge 150mm filter system to attach onto the front of the lens?
My main objective isn’t to provide an in-depth ‘review’ of the lens, but I hope to offer the reader a few insights in terms of how the lens performs from a landscape photographer’s perspective. A photographer who usually prefers to shoot ultra wide angle. I received the Tamron 17–28 in October and have had time to play around with the lens a little; enough to form an opinion and to shoot some example images (by adding a Dark Reader extension to your browser it will be possible to view the images on black).

Recently, photographer Mark Denney posted a video of the worst photography advice he’d received when he was a fresh budding young landscape photographer. But just as important as knowing what not to do is knowing what you should be doing. So, Mark’s put another video together of the best landscape photography advice he received when he was getting started.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the creative benefits of using ND (Neutral Density) filters in photography. This can be viewed here. Although I love ND filters they can require a larger initial investment which could be a barrier for people who want to play around with long exposures photography.
What if there was another option that let you adjust the strength of the light reduction which costs less and still offers decent image quality?
