There are lots of myths out there about photography that can end up holding you back if you listen to them, and it’s important to avoid falling prey to them. This great video discusses seven such myths in landscape photography and sets the record straight on what it’s really like.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this excellent video discusses seven myths surrounding landscape photography and how to avoid allowing them to hold you back. Of the myths, the two that resonate the most with me are location choices and beginner equipment. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you can only make good landscape shots at epic locations, but that just simply isn’t true. In fact, I think working with more normal locations can make you a better photographer simply because you aren’t presented with readymade shots nearly as much. On another note, landscape photography is absolutely a genre in which you can use more budget-oriented gear and still create great results, so don’t feel discouraged if you’re not shooting with the latest and greatest, and try not to succumb too much to gear temptation. Practice is what will give you the biggest steps forward. Check out the video above for Danson’s full thoughts.
