Why Is Exposure so Crucial in Landscape Photography?

It is no secret that the proper exposure is fundamental to creating a good landscape image, but it is even more important than you might think. If you would like to improve your landscape photos, check out this fantastic video tutorial that features an experienced photographer discussing some of the many reasons that getting the proper exposure is so crucial to a successful shot. 

Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this awesome video tutorial discusses why the proper exposure is so important in landscape photography. Of course, gaining the technical skills to create an image where light is well balanced across the frame is something every budding landscape photographer should learn, but it is also important to remember that there is more than one "correct" exposure for any given image. It is about being able to envision the final image you would like to create after the editing process is finished and understanding how to translate that into the technical parameters necessary to bring that to fruition. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
