Dealing with rough light in landscape photography
No doubt most of us love the soft, warm light of the golden hour, but simply put, you often go outside with your camera and are greeted with bright, unforgiving light. That doesn’t mean you should just pack up your camera and go back inside. In fact, you can get pictures that are just as good in harsh light and this awesome video tutorial explains what to do when you run into that light.
Come to you from Adam Gibbs, this great video tutorial explains how to deal with harsh light in landscape photography. While many of us don’t particularly like such light, I don’t think it’s any less useful than soft light. In fact, I really believe that you can take great pictures in any light, but that we often get stuck with taking certain photos that the available light is not conducive to. If we learn to use the available light at a specific time and place, and take photos that make sense with that type of light, we can always come home with something of value. Check out the video above for the full review of Gibbs.
