Romancing the Landscape Part 3: Ready for Anything
with Moose Peterson
When it comes to landscape photography, chances are you won't be able to control your environment. Unless you live in the area where you're shooting and can pick the perfect day, the light and conditions you have are the light and conditions you have. In the final installment of his three-part series, Moose explores the Valley of the Gods and shows you how to deal with whatever nature throws your way. Plus, his extra-long post processing session in lesson 12 is practically a class in and of itself. BUY COURSE
