3. Spend More Time Analysing the Scene
In many ways, this relates to the last two reasons. Since we only photograph a small selection of the scenery around us, it’s important to spend more time analyzing the surroundings.
It’s rare that the “point and shoot” approach works well with this type of photography; you first need to locate interesting characteristics about the landscape then you can explore it through the zoom.
Slowing down and spending more time analyzing my surroundings hasn’t only had an influence on my photography but also my life in general.
We’re so used to everything happening quickly or need to be finished as soon as possible. It’s easy to bring this way of thinking out with us in the field and we forget to take the time to experience and enjoy a location.
