Mountains are some of the most awe-inspiring objects in the world. These majestic giants can be brutal and beautiful at the same time. That’s one of the reasons why mountains are so fascinating. As a landscape photographer, there is literally and figuratively no way around mountains. Once you see a beautiful mountain you have to capture it, then climb up the mountain to get a picture of the view.
Mountain photography is not an easy discipline. The landscape can be harsh and difficult to travel through. It also takes skill to photograph these giants in a way that does justice to their grandness. If you’re interested in learning more about mountain photography, a good place to start is Grant Ordelheide’s A Simple Guide to Photographing Big Mountains. In the guide, Grant covers topics such as mountain safety, lighting, and composition.
