“When I started photographing landscapes the gulf between what I thought I was seeing and what my film camera recorded was positively Grand Canyon-esque in scale. I responded in the time-honored way of men – by throwing every spare dollar I had at better camera gear and fancy film stock. This, of course, resulted in a slightly narrower and much more expensive ‘canyon’.
The bridge across this divide was knowledge. Compared to camera equipment, knowledge appears decidedly drab and un-sexy at first. Knowledge doesn’t arrive in gold- embossed boxes with suede pouches. It doesn’t rattle off 10 frames per second and I doubt that anyone will spot your enormous knowledge while photographing a popular tourist lookout.
However, knowledge is the best investment that you can make in your landscape photography. Knowledge won’t be obsolete next year.” -Author Todd Sisson
