    No bad light. But light that isn't helping you. I need to start working on shooting to expose for the light. I am tired of that hazy blah sky.

    your channel is extremely helpful for DSLR photography, but its definitely hard to apply some of your tips for my GoPro, which is what i use more than my DSLR.

    Thank you for these great videos! You explain things very well, and I've learned quite a bit. My biggest problem in landscape photography is that most of my shots come out looking like "Great background. Where's the photo?" After watching this, I think the major mistake I've been making is treating the entire panoramic vista (a beautiful mountain range for example) as "the subject" of the photo, instead of focusing on just one aspect of it (the way the setting sun lights up the peak of that mountain over there and turns the snow a lovely pale pink, to continue the same example).

    One of my mistakes is to think if it looks sharp/focused on the LCD screen, it will also be so on the photo. I shoot a lot in low-light conditions (caves).

    Hi there, my common and usual mistake 🙁 I go out to shoot for birds, then suddenly I find that the landscape around is really worth some photos, but oh boy! I don't have a smaller lens with me hehehe, so…either taking a little portion of the lanscape with my 100-400, or none!!!
