Photographer and educator Huntington Witherill has produced a very wide range of photographic work over the course of his career, including landscape photography.

The practice of visualizing your images is not a new concept, but it's a valuable task that is easy to overlook. Not only is it important to consider what you want your image to look like on the camera, it's also vital that you consider how you want the final image to look after you've edited it in your software of choice.

Watch the video below to see Huntington work and learn more about his views on photography, realism and different technologies you can utilize to make the most of your opportunities in the field.
