A great landscape photo is the sum of many parts. Vision, planning, execution, post processing. Each plays their role in creating a compelling landscape photo. Making The Shot videos take you through the entire photographic process. I share my entire process from envisioning a photo, planning the shoot and sorting out logistics, on location thoughts about composition and camera settings, and the final in-studio post processing work.

In this course, I'll take you to Bandon Beach along the rugged and beautiful Oregon coast. I'll share the planning steps I took before the shoot, explain my gear choices, and discuss how conditions on location shaped my composition choices. After the shoot, I'll take you through shot selection and the end-to-end processing of my favorite photo.

The course includes a practice image and a detailed post processing ebook so you can follow along, too.
