7 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Local Landscape

As a landscape photographer, it is much easier to photograph the areas that are close to your home, rather than traveling all over the world in pursuit of world-famous locations.

How many times have you seen a shot of a model posed on railway tracks, capturing that sense of departure and romance, creating a moody or wild look? The fact that this is such a common type of shot to find in a portrait photographer’s portfolio is one good reason why you shouldn’t bother yourself with it. But there are plenty of landscape photographers who try for this kind of shot, too, and we often shoot the same locations as many others before us.
