A Landscape Photography Tutorial (from a Portrait Photographer Trying Something New)

0Comments

landscape-photography-tutorial

Sometimes when you’re in a rut the best way to get out of it is to do something completely out of the box and try something new – something a little risky.

Portrait photographer Sean Tucker changed things up recently but setting out on a landscape photography road trip.

He videos the experience and I think the result is fascinating – both to see how he approached his landscape photography but also to hear his insights on stepping outside his comfort zone to approach a new type of photography for him.

I like what he wrote in his blog about the experiment:

“There was no guarantee the trip wouldn’t be a waste as I’m not a professional landscape photographer by any means, but I think the best creativity will always come out when you are taking risks.”

Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and settle down to journey with Sean. The end results are at the end of the video.

Have you ever stepped out of your normal type of photography to try something new like Sean did?

    You nailed those shots dude. Awesome talent for light.
    It occurs to me that when we are in the discovery phase of any endeavor that our ego recedes somewhat and we are able to explore freely. Think of the millions of things that you shouldn’t do because your a Pro Photographer or a Cop or a Firefighter or a Teacher. When you become a discoverer, suddenly your free to try anything.
    People ask me if I’m a photographer and I answer no, I’m a guy with a camera. I’m unwilling to let go of the humility of beginner-ness.

    I wish I could see the name of that sun app in print.

  • Great video, and definitely true about pushing yourself outside of your comfort level to become more creative.

    Awesome adventure. Good tutorial. Don’t you think ego gets in the way of everything to some extent. I know mine does. illusions of greatness and all. Loved the photos. You obviously have what it takes to do landscape.
