Creating Dynamic Landscape Photography

By Anthony Thurston on July 28th 2014

As simple as landscape photography may seem from afar, it can actually be one of the most challenging when it comes to finding that creative spark, and being able to work in environments you can’t control.


It is summer in the US, and it is likely that many of you will be out and about in the country hoping to take some amazing landscape photos. It’s not just as simple as setting up your tripod and getting your exposure right, extra thought must go into composition and other aspects to really put your shot over the top.

The following, and quite lengthy, video is from a B&H workshop earlier this year in which Tim Cooper shares the secrets to getting beautiful and dynamic landscape images. If you can find the time to watch it through, it really is an interesting look at what goes into creating interesting landscape photography.

What are your thoughts on the video? Do you have anything to add in regards to creating dynamic landscape imagery? Leave a comment below!

      It was an in-person lecture, Greg, so that’s why it’s 90 mins.

      The best thing to do is to just turn it on in the background, or on your 2nd monitor, while you do something else. At least that’s what I’m doing right now!

    Thanks for sharing this article on how it takes so much more than what people think to get an amazing ladscape shot. Doing other types of photography help to improve our overall vision.
