Well, this is something I have been thinking more about when I go landscape shooting. As I normally just go with my camera but as I have been thinking more and more about what I really need. As sometimes I will be going out with 2 lenses and might change that as well as what flitters they are using. As you can see what will look good. It can be good practise to take a tripod as there might be a stream that can be shot with as this can make the water look flat and mirror-like.
I am going to be using photoshop more for my landscapes as this will look more dramatic and stunning. I have an image that shows what I mean. I am going to be starting to leave bright and early in the morning, as these can look amazing with frost on the floor. The before is the first image and the after is the next one.
I do hope that you can see there is more than just walking out the door with a camera.
