Landscape Photography Quick Tips: Revisit Locations

Don’t be afraid to revisit location you’ve photographed.

We as photographers never stop learning. To get your ultimate landscape shot, keep going back and use the knowledge you’ve learned from your previous visits of that location to explore the area again; 9 times out of 10 you’ll see something new.

It’s virtually impossible to capture all of the amazing sights of a location if you only visit it once, then move on to the next one on your photography bucket list.

We’re always looking for new scenes that inspire us, but a new scene in landscape photography is more than simply ticking boxes off a checklist of locations. The light, the seasons and weather change a scene through out the day, months and years. Returning to the same location gives you the photographer the opportunity to create work during times other people may never see.

My favorite local location is Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes Delaware. Check out the different photographs from the bay side of Henlopen over the years. Check out how the light, subjects and the land has changed during each visit.
