Learning photography is an ongoing process. Like with any sort of learning process, there’s no end to it. As photographers, it’s thus upon us to continue improving what we do. But, it’s easier said than done. Now, the question that arises next is, how can we improve? Photographer Chris Sale shares one thing that can help you improve your landscape photography:
“Each time I take a shot I take a step back, I look at the image on the back of the camera, and I ask myself one simple question. And that is, if I could change just one thing about that image, what would it be?”
The technique is really simple yet quite effective. All you need to do is ask yourself if you can do anything better to a photo that you’ve just taken. Can you make the composition any better? Do you need to change the exposure? How would it look if you zoomed in/out a little? Once you come up with an improvement, implement it. Then again ask yourself if it made the difference you were expecting.
Next time you’re out shooting, try this technique for yourself. You’ll be surprised with the improvement that you’ll be able to make to your landscape photography.
