I’ve been extremely bad at posting things of late, but don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten you all!

Over at Digital Photography School they’ve got a nice little article on the 10 Most Common Mistakes in Landscape Photography. In it they cover, unsurprisingly, ten things to watch for when you’re taking your landscape shots and how you can overcome them and improve your craft.

The ten points are:

  1. Crooked horizons
  2. Shooting from eye-level
  3. Empty skies
  4. Blur from hand held shots
  5. No focal point
  6. Cluttered backgrounds
  7. Poor lighting
  8. Under-exposure
  9. Blown out highlights
  10. Lack of depth

Its a good list and whilst I often correct #1 in post (it seems I can just never shoot a straight horizon!) #2, 3, 5, 6 and 10 are key ones for me that I always try to watch. Click through to read the article in full.
