Landscape photography allows us to connect with the great outdoors and explore the variety of colour and detail each season brings. Winter is no different, so this issue expert pro James Abbott has written us a guide on low-level landscapes, using wideangle lenses. Learn to use both shooting and editing techniques to ensure maximum sharpness from the front of your shot to more distant objects.
