Landscape photography is inspiring but unfortunately one often has to suffer for the art. The weather rarely plays nicely and you have to either pack up and go home or batten down the waterproofs and crack on. I was looking forward to Tony Worobiec's talk as he also takes photographs whatever the weather. I hope to show that being out in the rain or searing heat provides plenty of opportunities to the landscaper. I shall also look at why and how to take black and white landscape photographs as there are lots of different techniques to reach the end result. Black and white photographs can be a lot more dramatic than colour as they can be pushed a lot harder in post processing. I hope to give you a few ideas of the possibilities available.
