I found this video from Sekonic Light Meters on how to measure light to get perfect exposures for landscape photography. I thought it was worth sharing. For landscape photographers, capturing the best image data possible means better higher final image quality, less editing and the best possible print. Join host Joe Brady for this free webinar on using a handheld light meter out in the field and on location to ensure that this happens.
Are you a 'Hopper'? With landscape photography there is often the enticement to hop, bound and jump all over the place trying to chase down as many nice looking things as we can shoot. One of the down sides of this approach is that those one or two more significant compositions can be missed or forgotten about. And when that perfect light does come, it can quickly disappear while you are off elsewhere.
