When STRUGGLING Leads into Your BEST Day in Landscape Photography

The most beautiful thing about photography is that each day you get something new to learn. And every time you learn a new trick or a new composition, it will slightly improve your photography. These little increments eventually add up to produce amazing images. As Mao Zedong says, 'Once all struggle is grasped, miracles are possible.' However, sometimes, even with your impeccable skill and timing, you won't get the desired image just because nature would not go your way. If you have been through this, take a look at this inspirational video which discusses when struggling leads to your best day in landscape photography.

Coming after a very hectic day in Christian Irmler's photography walks, this breathtaking video will show you when struggling leads to your best day in landscape photography. Christian was hoping to take ethereal landscape images covered with fog. But nature had other plans, which really put a dent in Christian's plans. When these situations arise, you might start to hate the journey, and you might think of giving up. But if you hold your ground for that moment and keep struggling, you will see that it will all be worth it.

Check out the video above to get some inspiration for your next shoot.

POLARIZER: How FAR should we actually SCREW?

Photography is art, and art must always be improved. If you have just started your hand in photography or been doing it for some time, you must have come across polarizers. And similarly, you must have come across recommendations to use the said thing. The polarizer is an interesting and quite an important tool in photography. Those recommendations or advice are great, but only until a point. They mention all the great things a polarizer can do, but an important aspect is left behind. Take a look at this informative video which discusses that point and tells you, 'POLARIZER: How FAR should we actually SCREW?'

Christian Irmer experienced a similar confusion in the beginning, but fortunately, coming from his vast experience, this amazing video will tell you, 'How FAR should we actually SCREW?' Polarization can not only help with the composition but can improve the overall image quality as well. And this video discusses four different methods to use circular polarizers and how to apply the correct amount of polarization.

Check out the video above to get the in-depth information to improve your photography using a polarizer.



Should you REALLY bring ORDER in the CHAOS in Woodland Photography

Photography is another word for art. And just like the paints on a canvas, you make intricate designs and be extremely minute in your skill. But there are certain times when the artist lets the colors run wild and create chaos on the canvas. It may overwhelm us, but it cannot be denied that there is a certain beauty in the chaos. Similarly, there is natural chaos in woodland photography entwined with beauty. Take a look at this stunning video which discusses should you really bring order in the chaos in woodland photography.  

Coming to you from Christian Irmler’s vast knowledge of landscape and woodland photography, this amazing video ponders the question: should you really bring order in the chaos in woodland photography. You might have been advised to try to find order in that chaos, but remember the nature runs wild with beauty creating jaw-dropping scenes everywhere. And it would not be fair to confine that chaos. The better option is to hone your eye and taste for beauty and look for masterpieces in the chaos. As noted above, photography is not about control - it is art.

Check out the video above to get your answer in detail. 



What are the REALLY IMPORTANT Things in Landscape Photography?

Whenever we go out for a landscape photography shoot, we are torn apart among the most obvious of things. All of our focus is fixed on things like lighting, composition, background, and the like. No doubt, these are essential, and you cannot hope to capture a good image without keeping them in mind. However, in our search for a masterpiece, we usually overlook one of the most important things. If you think that you are captured in this dilemma too, take a look at this amazing video which will enlighten you about what are the really important things in landscape photography. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler's years of experience as a landscape photographer, this educating video will explain what are the really important things in landscape photography. The most important lesson he has learned in his challenging yet fruitful career is that landscape photography is hard, there’s no other way about it. And people quit too easily. But like every profession in the world, there’s a secret to it. And it lies in enjoying the process and being in the right mindset.

Check out the video above to find out the answers to some of your other problems regarding landscape photography as well. 



There is Always a Composition in Landscape Photography

If you have ever dabbled in Landscape Photography, you would know that composition ties the landscape photograph together; it is the heart and soul of those photographs. But the important things are never easy. Similarly, you might face situations when seemingly there would be no composition. For instance, it could be a fog-covered environment. You would be sure to give up at that point, but just before doing that, take a look at this excellent video which emphasizes there is always a composition in landscape photography.  

Coming straight from the lens of Christian Irmler, this video will show you there is always a composition in Landscape Photography. Christian was also shooting a lake wrapped in fog, and some passersby inquired what he was shooting as there was nothing to see. You might relate to this situation.

But as they say, beauty lies in the beholder’s eye; similarly, photographers should say the composition lies in the photographer’s eye. Composition is not only a representation of the landscape; it is the amalgam of the landscape and the photographer’s vision.

Check out the video above to replenish your creativity tank.


What if we CANíT FIND a COMPOSITION in Woodland Photography?

We all have a vision of our photography styles and compositions. But there are some patches of rainy days in every photographer’s life when they can’t seem to put a finger to what they want to shoot. If you have ever tried your hand at forest or woodland photography, you would know that it’s hard to come back without any bruises. These can be literal bruises, but sometimes you are bruised when you cannot get any inspiration. If you are beginning to panic and thinking what if we can’t find a composition in woodland photography; check out this fantastic video to replenish your idea banks.

Coming to you from Christian Irmler, this helpful video discusses what if we can’t find a composition in woodland photography. One thing about photography is that either you are brimming with compositional ideas, or you are on the other end of the spectrum, bone dry.

"Sometimes I find great compositions one after the other, but some days I walk around and work hard, but there’s nothing. So, the real question is how to get out of this loop and find a great composition." - Christian Irmler

Check out the video above for the full rundown and find out what to do in a similar position.



Ideas for Autumn Photography

If you have never stepped into a forest before, you might be a little hesitant to go for a shoot there. But if there is one thing you should never miss, it is a forest in autumn. Not only is autumn a really cozy time of the year, but if you can dare to be a little adventurous, it will give you the most breathtaking moments. This exceptional video tutorial will give you some of the best ideas for autumn photography. 

Coming to you from Christian Irmler, this stunning video shows off the best ideas for autumn photography that you can use in your shoot. One of the best parts of autumn photography is beholding the natural transition of forests from green to yellow; it never ceases to amaze. The foliage takes the breath away with the amazing colors, and there is an abundance of subjects in autumn.

“But if there is one thing that I have always recommended, it’s that don’t look for subjects, look for stories. Even a bland-looking subject can tell an amazing story; you just need to be creative.” - Christian Irmler

Check out the video above to get your creative juices flowing.

How the Right Light Can Improve Autumn Landscape Photography

If photographers were to swear by one thing and one thing alone, it would be that lighting is king. It does not matter what you are shooting or what style you are using; if you don’t get the lighting right, you might mess up badly. Although you might say that light is more controllable in a contained studio environment, it plays an equally important role in landscape photography. In this video photography artist Christian Irmler shows how the right light improved his autumn landscape photography massively.

This incredible video will show you how the right light improved my autumn landscape photography. Of course, you cannot control light when you go for a landscape shoot, but never forget that natural light is your best ally. The only thing you need to do is know how to work with it, and it will do wonders for you.

"Usually, I don’t like to bring things into my composition made by human hands, but in this case, it adds to my composition. And when you add a great composition with perfect light, that’s when the magic happens." - Christian Irmler. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

The BEST Conditions for Landscape Photography

Your opinion might differ on the best conditions for landscape photography, but if there is one thing common in all landscape photography opinions, it would be that it all depends on the story you are trying to tell. And it depends on mother nature, the capability of the landscape, and of course, your ability to capture it right. If you agree, you should check out the video to see how landscape photographer Christian Irmler got the best conditions for landscape photography in the middle of the bland and textureless landscape. 

This stunning video will show you how Christian found the best conditions for landscape photography this year and how he got the most out of them. Just to give you a heads-up, you might look at a scene sometime, and you might be tempted to move away due to blandness. But all it takes is a few steps and the determination to take risks, and you end up with the best images of the season. “I did not really plan to take all the risks in that weather; I did not even have my super long telephoto lens with me at the time, but the scene was absolutely amazing, and I grabbed the opportunity. Wait till you see the results in the video.“

Check out the video above for the full rundown from Christian.

How Inspiration lead into a MASTERPIECE

If you put some photographers in front of a scene and ask them to shoot it, they will produce different results. Whether it be composition or the angle or anything else for that matter, there will be something unique about each of them. The only thing that is similar in every photographer who has ever lived is that there comes a time in their life when they feel the polar opposite of inspiration. This video discusses how inspiration leads to a masterpiece.

Coming to you from Christian Irmler, this incredible video will guide you on how inspiration led him to create a masterpiece and how you can too.

"Being a landscape photographer, I had this belief that I wanted to create my own art, my own story. But photographing a fire festival would not be my story; that’s what I believed. I reluctantly went there and took some photographs, and the only thing I can say now is that I have never been so wrong" - so Christian.

Sometimes a simple inspiration can lead to masterpieces. You might not be tempted to take your camera just like Christian wasn’t, but it might be worth as it was for him. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
