DAVID’S TOP TIPS
Fully understand your camera, what it can do and how it works
If you want to shoot landscapes, invest in a good tripod.
Elevation! Before the tripod even comes out, think about the elevation of the camera this is crucial to the final composition – just a couple of inches up or down can make a massive difference to landscape photography.
Filters are not essential but exceptionally useful and will improve landscape features and expand creative options. For sunset and sunrise, filters really help to balance brightness. Remember who you are taking pictures for. Take the pictures that make YOU happy – something that you could sit and just look at for an extended period of time.
Make sure you have all you need to stay safe on the hills ie head torch and map!
