Learn Landscape Photography and How to Best Glorify the Beauty All Around You In Photos.
Achieve amazing landscape photography with the help of Erik Stensland.
This e-book begins with a quote. Nothing too fancy. Simple. If you’ve ever tried taking landscape photographs, you’ll understand the meaning of the quote. It’ll hit home. It goes like this: “Beauty is a riddle.”
You understand this because, if you’re like me, you can become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of beauty when photographing the world around you. There’s too much to see. There’s too much to feel. Everything takes your attention.
Not only do you want to shoot a brook and the quiet around it. You want to capture the green life surrounding it. Oh, and that mountain over there, looming miles ahead. Let’s get that in the shot too.
It seems like landscape photography requires a different language, a new vocabulary, a new way of seeing. It seems impossible to translate what you see into a great photograph. You’re stuck knowing you have something to say, and not being able to say it.
Luckily, Getting Started in Landscape Photography will unlock the riddle of this genre.
It’ll be your guide to learning how to speak in the language of landscapes.
You’ll learn the universal themes. You’ll learn the gear. And you’ll learn how to see and composite the sublime nature of what you need to express.
“To overcome the disparity between what we see and feel and what the camera will capture, we need to begin to see like a camera with all of its limitations. Then we can begin to discover how to convey the emotions we feel and the essence of what we see. This is a learning process which takes some time, but it is a journey well worth taking.”
The tools of a great landscape photographer.
10 chapters of development.
What matters can be simplified into two things: Light + Composition. Of course are many other properties that go into making a great landscape. But getting the best images is about simplifying.
With this ebook, you’ll learn landscape photography and how to produce landscapes that’ll sing. Learn how to make photographs that’ll grab a viewer and say, “Listen to me!” All 10 Chapters in this ebook explore a different aspect of landscape photography you’ll need to master.

We all know the most important lesson is Light. After reading this, you’ll be able to see what Erik sees. You’ll get insights that I’ve never read before.

Or even using ClearDarkSky.com for knowing when clouds will give you soft, diffusive light.
