Five Awesome Summer Landscape Photography Ideas

Summertime can be a bit tricky for landscape photographers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get great shots during the warm weather. This excellent video shows you five great landscape photo ideas for summer.

Coming to you from Mark Denney, this video details five great ideas for summertime landscape photography. Landscape photographers often lament the arrival of summer, as despite the nice weather, it can actually be the least visually interesting of the four seasons.

That being said, that doesn’t mean you can’t get any shots at all. Personally, I enjoy summertime landscape photography, as I approach it a bit differently. Given the nice weather, it’s a lot of fun to just pack my camera with a single lens and go for a long hike. Often, I’ll make this a longer lens, like my 100mm macro.

Given that summertime light can often be a bit harder and harsher for longer hours, using a longer lens to pick out more details and abstract compositions can be a great way to deal with the light. Check out the video above for Denney’s awesome ideas.
