Basic Gear For Landscape Photography

Landscape photographers are a special breed. They’re the ones getting up at zero-dark-thirty to hump their camera gear up trails and through the woods in a quest for the perfect light. They’re the ones hiking back to the car by the light of a headlamp because the perfect light was 30 minutes after sundown and it’s five miles back to the car.

The great thing about landscape photography is the gear is pretty basic and you can get started for a very reasonable investment. Landscape scenes are typically not moving very fast, so you can avail yourself of a wonderful world of manual lenses that don’t have all the bells and whistles of brand name glass but provide amazing quality for the money.
