Photographer Attilio Ruffo has been busy over the last decade doing landscape photography. During that time, he has learned a variety of lessons. His latest video features 5 tips he learned by making mistakes and Ruffo hopes that they'll help the rest of us become better landscape photographers. While Ruffo does have formal photography training, it was focused on documentary, portraiture, lighting techniques and more, but it was never landscape photography training.

His first tip is to plan and arrive on location early. There is very little more frustrating to a landscape photographer than being late and missing the best light. Ruffo has made this mistake many times and it is sometimes the result of being too ambitious. You need to have time to understand your location, which means arriving early and giving yourself time to scout and set up your image. To see the rest of Ruffo's tips, watch the full video below.
