I’m just back from a trip to an ancient woodland where I enjoyed some fulfilling photography but faced challenges in terms of the woodland itself and the weather. I created a video showing my experience and I give some tips and ideas to hopefully help you in your own woodland photography. You can watch the video on my YouTube channel here.
As soon as you begin your journey as a landscape photographer you will start to read and hear about the importance of taking images at golden hour. It can certainly help us capture some wonderful images, but is it the only time of day we can capture our best photographs? That’s what I discuss in my latest YouTube video which you can watch here.
I've just released a video in which I climb high in the hills and mountains of Scotland and capture three images around sunset. I discuss the importance of preparation and taking your time when capturing landscape images to give yourself the best chance of success. You can watch my video here.
I've been on a few trips recently in various places across Scotland and I have vlogs from some of these on my YouTube channel. I always enjoy looking for unique images and I talk about that in one of my videos, I also have a couple of woodland photography videos posted. I really enjoy woodland photography and the search for interesting compositions. You can watch my latest video here and I've included a couple of images from recent videos below.
In recent weeks I have been at the coast hoping to capture some seascapes. In one of those trips I faced changeable conditions and ending up returning to the same location twice, you can watch that video here. In my second trip I headed out to another location in the hope of capturing some sunset images with wonderful colour in the sky. I was fortunate enough to witness an amazing sunset with wonderful colour, that video is available here.
Woodland photography can be very challenging but I find it really rewarding when I capture a woodland image that I'm proud of. If you struggle with woodland photography my latest video may give you some tips and ideas to help, you can watch it here.
Sunsets at the coast can be so rewarding and so challenging too. The tide is always changing and that makes our compositions change too, then we need to factor in the changing light. The coast is definitely one of my favourite places for landscape photography and I love the challenges it brings. In my most recent vlog I headed out on a beautiful night to try and capture an amazing sunset. You can watch the video here.
In this weeks vlog I discuss the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens (affiliate link to the product on Amazon - https://amzn.to/2Wy0FdB). I think this is an excellent lens and offers fantastic value for money, I also find that it works really well for woodland photography.
