Everyone has seen “that photographer” at one time or another. He’s the guy rocking his camera around his neck, gazing around his surroundings in a perplexed manner while his model rolls her eyes and glances at her watch. Clearly, he doesn’t have a clue and is one of the least cool photographers in the business.
Starbursts render a magical effect in landscape compositions, especially when the technique is done correctly. A lot of photographers capture starbursts accidentally, but if you know the exact process, you can recreate the magic at will.
If you’re looking to take your landscape photography to new levels, you’re in luck. You don’t need to run out and purchase expensive new gear in order to create amazing landscapes; one of the best ways to create visually stunning landscapes, is by mastering the art of composition.

The field of time-lapse photography takes a substantial amount of research and testing to master, especially with variable lighting conditions.

If you love capturing the bright hues of autumn, chances are many of your attempts had ended with heartache. Modern cameras, even with all the latest technology, are not nearly sensitive enough to capture all the dynamic range in a typical autumn landscape scene.
You’re packing up after a hard day of shooting. All your camera gear goes neatly back into its respective bags, but the reflector refuses to comply. You twist and turn it trying every possible method but the contraption simply refuses to be tamed and bagged. Eventually you do end up as the winner of this impromptu wrestle, but not before becoming a great source of entertainment for the rest of the crew.
Almost anyone can be a photographer, but not everyone goes out of their way to capture powerful and moving images. For those who do, the journeys they find themselves on can lead to many out-of-the-way places.
