Landscape photography is made for the manual mode because you have time to assess exactly how you want to expose the frame, both creatively and technically. If you’re new to photography and feel a bit overwhelmed with interpreting and managing all of the settings and parameters associated with it, check out this fantastic video tutorial which will show you everything you need to know about using manual mode for landscape photography.
Coming from Mads Peter Iversen, this great video tutorial will show you everything you need to know about using manual mode for landscape photography, from adjusting white balance to using tools like histogram, through exposure settings. A lot of people start out with something like aperture priority mode, and that’s perfectly fine, but the cool thing about landscape photography is that you can take the same composition in a number of different creative directions by depending on how you balance the exposure settings (especially when you start adding ND filters). For that, manual mode is the better choice, rather than having the camera guess what you’re thinking creatively. You’ll be glad you found out. Watch the video above for Iversen’s full recap.
