Landscape photography is very popular both for photographers and the photo viewing audience. There is nothing like catching a perfect sunrise over an iconic location that took a lot of hard work, time, and patience to capture.

Landscape Photography: Shooting From Dawn to Dusk Course Preview:
1. Gear Up
You’ll join Rick at Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado where he’ll introduce you to the course as well as the essential gear you’ll need to become a better landscape photographer.
As one of the most important and interesting times to shoot for landscape photographers, sunrise provides some of the best light and shadows for photos. In this lesson you’ll learn how to work with that light and your camera exposure to create stunning compositions.
3. Midday Shoot
When the sun is high in the sky, landscape photography becomes a little more challenging. But it’s not as hard as you think as Rick talks about using filters, different lenses, and composition techniques to make shooting midday a rewarding experience.
4. Sunset Shoot
Known better as the “Golden Hour”, the hours around sunset can offer some of the best light to work with. In this lesson you’ll learn how to capture the depth and drama of shadows and contrasting backgrounds and foregrounds.
5. Specialty Shots
Rick finishes the course with digital darkroom techniques including black and white landscapes, format options, how to select your best photos, and more.
If you’re someone who is wondering how to take better landscape photos or just looking for a few extra tips to take your photos to the next level, this course is probably for you. You can’t beat Craftsy’s money back guarantee so there is no risk in trying it out.
