Professional landscape photographer Andy Mumford recently traveled to Iceland to shoot winter landscapes. There are very few places on Earth that command as much respect as Iceland. It is a real paradise for landscape photographers.

In the video below, we follow Mumford as he explores the Icelandic landscape, including the island nation’s highlands, waterfalls and ice caves. Given the highlands, despite their beauty, the photographic subjects are not always obvious as the landscape is vast, and there are very few foreground elements. In places like this, where you feel like the landscape surrounds you, you don’t even know where to start a composition, Mumford suggests slowing down and taking your time. It is also a situation to try a longer lens, such as a telephoto zoom lens, instead of a wide angle lens can benefit you. A longer lens allows you to focus on smaller parts of a larger scene.

Mumford offers many great tips for a wide range of landscape photography situations, including abstract photography, using people in a landscape to create a sense of scale, seascape photography, and working in an environment. cramped and narrow. Mumford covers a lot of ground in under 10 minutes, and there’s some wonderful footage to enjoy.
