Today, we discuss the best camera settings for landscape photography. This topic is a somewhat difficult one as there isn’t a universal answer to the question “what’s the best settings for landscape photography?”. There’s many constantly changing variables to account for when it comes to determining the best camera settings to use. What I hope you’re able to get out of this little workshop is a workflow that you can apply the next time you’re on-location that’ll help you determine the best settings for your landscape photography.
I share a five question workflow that helps me determine the best camera settings for the landscape photography situation I happen to be in. This workflow has simplified the decision making process for me and most importantly has enabled me to feel confident that I’ve selected the best camera settings. Light and weather conditions change quickly while on a landscape photography trip. It’s easy to miss one of the many variables that require consideration and having an organized and repeatable process related to selecting camera settings is of the utmost importance.
I hope this simple workflow that you can apply to your next landscape photography trip that’ll enable you to feel more confident that you’ve selected the best settings for the photography scenario you’re in!
