There are many clear ways to improve your landscape photography, including improving your lenses, buying filters, investing in a good tripod and much more. However, there are also some less obvious ways to improve your images. In a new video, photographer Adam Karnacz shares seven “alternative ways to improve your landscape photography.”

The first one is something photographers might not often consider, their own fitness. If you aren’t willing to walk quite far from your car or a parking area, you are limiting your photographic possibilities. Of course, there are people with restricted movement and we should do as much as we can to ensure everyone has access to beautiful areas, but if you can go the extra mile for a shot, you probably should. The more fit you are, the more options you have when out in the field and the more photographic possibilities you will have access to.

His next tip is also related to physical comfort when out in the field, food. It’s important to have the right kind of food to keep yourself fueled out in the field. I try to ensure I always have a few different snacks packed away in my bag when I’m out shooting. There have been times when I’ve planned to only be out a few hours, but there were many photographic opportunities so I stayed out longer. In these cases, snacks proved crucial. To see the rest of Karnacz’s alternative ways to improve your landscape photography, watch the full video below.
