This week, we’ve gathered some fantastic landscape photographers who share their tips, passion and thoughts on all things landscape photography on YouTube.
James Popsys - @JamesPopsysPhoto
James Popsys is a travel and adventure photographer based in the UK. His YouTube channel focuses on landscape photography, with a dash of humor. In the video below, he heads to the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales to try out some landscape photography with the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master and Sony 85mm f/1.4 G Master. To spark some creativity, he challenged himself to take all these images at f/1.4, which isn’t always typically for sweeping landscapes. We think the results were pretty good, take a look for yourself!
