“Landscape photography is like anything else in life. It has its ups and downs, lows and highs. On the video last week it was very emotional, I captured some amazing shots, met some incredible people and it was a big high. When you’re on top, the only way is down and it’s important not to see this as a negative but rather a natural movement in the wave of life and the photography process. At a time like this I there are two things I like to do with my landscape photography. The first option is to head off on an epic trip to somewhere amazing. I’ll be doing that soon but it’s not always possible. The second option is to come back to somewhere close to home or somewhere you know really well, slow it down and just enjoy the process. That’s exactly what I’ve done today and I’ve come back to Roseberry Topping, just couple of miles from where I grew up.
I am also very proud to be launching my landscape photography workshops. Spend the day with me and retrace the steps from one of the First Man Photography vlogs and capture some of the finest scenery the UK has to offer. The workshops will be a brilliant day and my supportive and encouraging style, enthusiasm and knowledge will give you confidence with your camera and help you capture some incredible landscape images. Book your trip now and come along for the ride.” – Adam Karnacz

In this nature photography tutorial we join nature photographer Matthew Schwartz as he walks us through a behind-the-scenes post-processing session for one of his beautiful fine art bird photographs. As noted in the video, his style is “Artistic Images” not “Documentary Photos” so he does manipulate elements in the image.
Nature Photography Tips with Robert O’Toole
Published Jan 4, 2014 by:Don Haynes
In this nature photography video we join professional wildlife photographer, Robert O’Toole as he discusses his travels across the world routinely enduring extreme temperatures, sometimes hiking loaded down with gear for miles in total darkness to capture images of nature at sunrise. In this presentation Robert shares his inspiration, passion and creative vision that drives his photography. He shares some of his favorite images and the equipment, techniques and stories behind them.
It’s unusual for Thomas to indulge in too much editing, however with this image Thomas processed it more than he usually would. Thomas had a picture in his mind of how he wanted it to look. During this landscape photography tutorial Thomas achieves his vision with Lightroom and Photoshop. He used the Loupedeck to edit the RAW file, which massively improves the LR user experience.
