Enter To Win a Landscape Photography Class (Winner Announced)
- By: Nate Kay
Congrats to Becky M. who was selected as the winner!
Once you have a general knowledge of shooting landscapes, it’s exciting to get out there and put those new skills to work with your camera. But when it comes time to load the hundreds of photos after a shoot, sometimes it’s difficult to sort through all the shots to find the good ones, because you might be just shooting anything that you think might work. Being picky as a landscape photographer is a good trait to have and many times it takes a workshop with a good photographer to recognize when and where to take the shot.
