hi welcome in this video my name is
Benjamin Jaworskyj and today I have five landscape photography
secrets for you. when you see those great landscape photos of water they look smooth and
silky in most of the times a long exposure is the reason. to take a long exposure during day you need an ND filter they work like sunglasses and
darken the image so you can take
a longer shutter speed. when you now photograph water or clouds
you get great smooth effects. maybe you heard of the polarizing
effect from your fishing trips already. fishermen use it to see
fishes swim under the water surface. a polarizing filter does the same when you
put it on and turn it you can get rid of reflections and get a more painterly
contrasting look. works perfectly in forest or on waterfalls. is the sky too bright in your landscape photos what you need is a graduated filter just screw
the holder in front of your lens and then slide the filter from top to bottom inside. as you can see the top is like an ND filter so darkens the image where the
sky is without affecting the bottom part of the image they are not cheap to buy
but worth the money when you look at amazing landscape
photos and see all those great colors you might think whoa a lot of image
editing will be needed to achieve that but the truth is that it’s all about the right light. landscape photographers get
up early and go to bed late because around sunrise and sunset you
get the best light. so when you want to take
great landscape photos chase the light and not Lightroom presets. when I take
landscape photos I not only wait for great light but I also look for
foregrounds you can transform your image and change the mood or message by just
changing the foreground walk around and look on the ground what you find
interesting or catchy there can be flowers, rocks, sticks or
anything else by moving close they appear bigger and will pimp up your
landscape photography game. which of the five landscape photography secrets did
you like the most? write in the comments below and amongst all people that write

landscape photography courses of learnfromben.com there’s a whole landscape

  2. léopoldd says:

    Great tips ! For the graduated filter, I prefer bracketing instead : way cheaper and same result ! 😉 I think the best tip is about the polarizing filter, it really can transform an image in a way that you couldn't achieve otherwise !

  14. Daniel Catalina says:

    Hi Ben, 'chase the light' is the one that I like the most. The filters can be bought or simulated in software, even the light can be painted in post processing, but actually being there when the light is at its greatest gives you some great feelings (and good photos, of course).

  15. Alexander Mayer says:

    I have liked all 5 secrets

  31. Gordon Young says:

    secrets really ? since when ?

  32. Pack & Click says:

    I really enjoyed the video. I haven't used graduated filters as of yet, so that was my favorite. Nothing to do with photography, but what do you always say in German at the end of your videos?

  33. QZ AU says:

    i like the polarizing filter tip! it really helped me a lot when i learned about using this thing few months ago

  34. Piotrek Deska says:

    For those who shoot for some time, any of those aren't secrets 😉 But it's always worth to remind some tips. Personally I think foreground is one of most important things. If you don't have the right frame, even with great light and nice exposure balanse something is missing on the picture 🙂

  35. Peter Jensen says:

    These are grea reminders for things to try. cheers peter

  36. Mark Taylor says:

    Interesting foreground is the best tip for me – I keep forgetting it and wasting the good light I've waited for!

  37. Pedro Cunha says:

    what is your opinion of blend multiple exposure vs GND ?

  38. Tobis Foto says:

    Sach mal Einstellung Digga. Zwar ungewohnt in Englisch aber wie immer gut.

    Great tips, my favorite is to chase the light.

  52. Andreas Brett says:

    I definitely liked the first 3 secrets the most since they're about spending money on things you actually sell surprise aaaaaaand they're actually not secrets as every beginner in landscape photography already knows to get ND, GND and polarizing filters. Great work, this video was almost as helpful to me as to you.

  53. Stephanie Saxemard says:

    cool content and well explained!

  54. Jon Oh says:

    I really like the foreground tip! It is very overlooked!

  58. Layth 786 says:

    "Chase the light and not Lightroom presets"…real talk right there 🔑

  59. mark newman says:

    Great video, I liked the "great light" and "foreground interest" the best. I need to get out of bed early and find great locations too.

  60. ratandeep saha says:
