3. Capture the must-see landscape spots…and then search for new vistas
In a world filled with cameras and photographers, it can seem like there are no places left unphotographed. Certainly, when it comes to the “essential” landscape mainstays around the globe, it can feel that way, but with every photographer comes a unique stylistic approach to seeing that location. Get those gotta have shots, in your own special way, and then go in search of the less visited areas.
You’ll find that crowded trails often become less crowded after a mile or two, and while the famous overlooks and vistas are crowded with tripods, the more remote areas are often empty, but no less beautiful. Don’t leave it up to a map to tell you what constitutes a scenic overlook!
