Landscape Photography – Tips for Shooting Near Water

On this video, professional landscape & wildlife photographer Ian Plant (from UltimatePhotoGuide) looks at some of the things that you can do when taking landscape pictures near water.

Water can add a lot to any landscape image but you need to keep in mind a few things. Try and get reflections from what goes on in the sky to the water whenever possible – it will almost certainly add to your image.

Plant does much of his photographic work around water and we have already published his video on “Tips for Taking Photos of Water Reflections” as well as his advice on what to take with you for any water-photography related trip – “Photography On the Water – What to Take with You“.
