Heaps of white ash and clay pepper the Bisti Wilderness as the vivid evening sky stretches itself above a fiery horizon. When there are so many cool elements happening at once, how do you compose a simple, focused shot and steer clear of distractions?

Learn how finding a point of interest and exposing properly can simplify a cluttered composition, and share your own experiences below!

When "the best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray," is it better to spend more time researching or on location? How can you become not just a landscape photographer by definition but also an effective photographer in practice? 

In this blogpost, Jay offers some advice for maximizing your time so that you get consistent results in the field, even when it means changing plans at a moment's notice!

We are not talking about improving your technical or processing skills. This is about your effectiveness as a photographer in the field.

Natural light is never static. With a slight shift in the direction of the sun or a gust of wind that sends clouds racing across the sky, a landscape can be changed in an instant.

How do you respond to changing light conditions? Don't miss this example from the Big Island of Hawaii of how changing light transformed the rugged volcanic terrain into a dreamy watercolor masterpiece.

Changing light makes a location seem entirely different from one moment to the next.

Oregon wildflowers, freshly washed by the morning rain, blanket a meadow in quiet beauty. In a scene like this one where there is so much loveliness to take in, what catches your eye? What fades into the distance as you hone in and look more closely?

Check out this quick tip about choosing which elements to emphasize and which to let fade into the background and learn how details as tiny as water droplets can become a perfect resting place for your viewers' eyes.

Hand me that camera, will you? What do you do when you hear this request? You hand the camera over carefully.

Shooting on an Overcast Day?

Do dreary days get you down? An overcast sky may not excite most people when they head out for the day, but for the photographer, it means even lighting and soft shadows that are absolutely perfect for certain shots.

Take a look at these examples of overcast perfection and be ready to gather your gear next time the sun refuses to shine!

Being a photographer means being adaptable. You won't always get spectacular lighting - and some scenes look great on an over cast days.

Great article!    I've struggled with these points and have come to terms with the limits I have and my motivation for shooting landscape...and I'm happier for that.   I don't have the money and time to travel to all the big photo destinations.   If I do get to some of these locations, it's when I can get there, not at the last minute when conditions appear to be promising.    It's the luck of the draw if I do get amazing light, but the greater motivation is to experience all the beauty these locations have to offer.
