Yes, landscape photography can be a slow, contemplative process that can take hours and hours before you capture a true "keeper" photo. But part of that is because photographers spend a lot of their on-location photo shoots wasting time, according to landscape pro Mark Denney in the below video.
"In this week’s episode, we discuss why you should stop wasting time doing this with your photography," Denney says.
"This is probably a carryover from my many years spent in the corporate world, but I'm always striving to be as efficient and productive as possible with my time and when I'm on-location, it isn't any different. Looking at the way I operate now when I'm on-location versus the way I used to work when I was first starting, well to say it's a bit different would be an understatement.
In the below video, Denney shares seven tips that have helped him to be "substantially more productive on-location." He explains that it's not just about being efficient, it's about being effective as photographer.
