Do some planning before you go out to shoot landscape photography projects. Planning for the time of day and weather can make or break your shot. Be sure to check the weather and download an app like PhotoPills to nail the timing of golden hour and blue hour wherever you are in the world.
Wide-angle lenses help you capture as much of the landscape scene as possible. Whenever you're shooting with a wide-angle lens, pay careful attention to the corners of the frame, especially the bottom corners. If you can capture leading lines from the bottom corners of the frame leading into the center of the landscape image, you can create more drama in your composition.
You can show your viewers a new way to look at your subject by experimenting with unique perspectives—change your vantage point to get above the scene or get on the ground to shoot. These simple changes in your perspective produce a completely different emotion from your images for a scroll-stopping image.
