Views:2630|Rating:4.93|View Time:15:36Minutes|Likes:133|Dislikes:2
I’ve had a fair few emails from people asking me for tips on how to help them improve their Landscape Photography.

So for this weeks vlog, I decided to put together a 10 Lessons Learnt throughout my short career as a Landscape Photographer.

I won’t be focussing on technical aspects in too much detail (that’s for another video), but rather on experiences I have encountered and the lessons I have learnt from them which will hopefully be of some value to help you avoiding the same mistakes.

If you have learnt from another experience then let me know in the comments below.

How to effectively set your goals and improve your photography



Views:260|Rating:4.82|View Time:7:26Minutes|Likes:27|Dislikes:1
So we’re at the start of a New Happy whether you run a photography business or you shoot landscape images for fun, you’re probably trying to work out where you want to take your photography this year. One way to do that is setting goals for your photography. In this video, I’m going to talk about 5 tips that will help you create effective goals for your landscape photography.

WHY SET GOALS
As a teacher, I’ve used goal setting with my students as an effective way of identifying areas where they want to improve. Setting goals for your photography is an effective way of improving your photography!

Goals can help keep you focused on an area you want to improve and you monitor your progress along the way. Goals can provide the encouragement you need to step outside your comfort zone and try something new. It can be exciting to have goals you’re working towards. Goals set up milestones that can help keep you motivated and when you reach a goal that you’ve set for yourself, it’s a fantastic feeling of achievement. Importantly Goals identify how you’re going to improve whatever you’re doing (in this case photography) to the next level.

CHOOSE A GOAL
The goals you choose could come from a range of different areas related to your photography and aspects you want to improve.

HOW TO SET GOALS?
Setting goals is a personal thing, and they reflect where you are on your photography journey. I want to share with you 5 tips to help you select effective goals:

1. If you are just doing this for the first time pick something simple
2. Set a few but not too many
3. Make your goals achievable
4. Make your goals measurable
5. Choose something that’s within your control

Views:17643|Rating:4.90|View Time:8:3Minutes|Likes:956|Dislikes:19
Lisa Gade demonstrates 5 principles that will improve your photos— from dSLRs to point and shoots to camera phones. We head outdoors to learn how to make great compositions, capture pets and kids looking their best, get good exposure, create more flattering portraits and capture wildlife without fancy long lenses. From full frame 35mm equivalent to phones, we use a variety of cameras including the iPhone 6, Nokia Lumia Icon, Canon EOS 6D, Sony a6000, Sony RX10 and an old Canon EOS 50D. This article is for novices–if your dreams are filled with photo ops in Brunei with Leica in hand, you know f/1.2 from f/11 and how to use them and are mastering advanced lighting in your photos, then you likely know these points. * Read our companion article here:

The Purpose of Photography Isn’t to Become a Better Photographer but to Improve Your Life

Is photography improving your life?

Remember the purpose of photography isn’t to become a ‘better’ photographer. The purpose of photography is to live a happier life!

1. Always remember that photography is a tool to help you find more beauty and appreciation in your everyday life.

2. Don’t take your photography too seriously — shoot playfully and with joy!

3. Only photograph what makes you smile.

4. Post-process your photos like painting your photos. Cultivate your own personal aesthetic and style according to what you consider is beautiful.

5. Motivate yourself in life by drinking more black coffee, by taking on greater and more epic challenges, and by focusing on your life purpose!

Let us hustle hard this week. Memento Mori (remember life is short and uncertain); maximize every single moment of every single day!

BE BOLD.

Improve Your Landscape Photography

We amateur photographers are always looking for ways to improve our landscape photography. The start of a new year is when we traditionally make New Year’s Resolutions. This year I am going to make three New Year’s resolutions to improve my landscape photography.

I believe that the three most important elements of a photograph are the subject, the composition and the lighting:

For 2019 the three New Year’s resolutions that I am going to make are:
1. to spend more time exploring new locations looking for interesting subjects
2. to focus my compositions on what first attracted me to a subject and to eliminate everything else
3. to match the lighting conditions to the subject

If you are considering making a New Year’s Resolution this year why not commit right here, right now and by leaving me a comment.

New New Year everyone – Chris
