Dramatic skies and autumn colors: Behind the scenes with a pair of landscape photographers

Who doesn't love a good photography vlog? We have a pair of landscape-centric videos to share with you today.

The first video is from Gary Gough, a photographer and educator. Gary was recently in the Isle of Skye in Scotland leading a five-day workshop. He considers the Isle of Skye one of the best places in the world for landscape photography due to its dramatic skies.

In the video below, we go behind the scenes with Gough in Scotland and see him work. He discusses different images, which is a great way to learn some nice tips and tricks.

Next up is an autumn photography video from Thomas Heaton. In Heaton's video, he travels to the Lake District in search of fall colors. He thinks that autumn is one of the best times of the year for landscape photography, but it is also one of the most challenging.

One of my favorite parts in the video below is when Heaton discusses lifting his tripod about eight inches higher when composing a shot. It's a small change, yes, but that minor adjustment completely changes the composition and makes a much stronger image. Check it out below.
