Much of the world is still dealing with some sort of lockdown, thanks to the ongoing health crisis. However, even though you may be limited to local walks instead of heading to your favorite shooting spots, you can still improve your photography!

Being a landscape photographer I find myself in tune with the elements and locations around me. I am always keeping an eye on the weather, where the sun is, how the light is changing, and looking for leading lines into compositions. While I’m on my leisurely walk I’ll always take my camera, ready to capture an image.
