MAKE THE MOST OF LIGHT
How planning will help you capture better shots
Understanding where the sun will be during the day is essential for making the most of
any landscape. The most dramatic lighting effects generally take place around sunrise and sunset, so before I venture to any location, I check where these will be in relation to the features in the landscape.
Even so, nature and the weather don’t always go to plan, so I will often change my composition and framing (or even the direction that I’m shooting) to react to where the light is falling on the landscape.
