I am excited to announce the latest addition to CaptureLandscapes’ video course collection: Into the Light. It’s the most comprehensive landscape photography video series I’ve come across and it’s a must-have for anyone wanting to improve their skills; which is why I’m extra excited to share that it’s now available on our website.

Predominantly captured across the scenic South Island of New Zealand, this 7-part video series by world-class landscape photographer William Patino begins with the fundamentals of photography, covering off on the core basics of understanding your camera’s functions, the exposure triangle, effectively composing a scene, shooting in manual mode and then moving into more advanced techniques such as exposure blending, focal length bending and handheld focus stacking.

Heading into the field we explore a variety of locations and scenarios. From capturing mountains, seascapes, forests, waterfalls and the night sky, each episode concentrates on different techniques and methods, all categorized and progressing in technicality along the way.

What you’ll learn

By completing this video series you’ll be left with the essential knowledge needed to capture awe-inspiring images. These are some of the main lessons you’ll learn:

  • what to look for (and to avoid) in the field
  • how to approach and compose a scene
  • adjusting settings and adapting to changing conditions.
  • after seeing the image captured in the field, you’ll then learn how the file is processed.
