“I’ve developed a way of treasuring the landscape and seeing it as more sacred than I used to” This issue, we’re finally looking ahead to a life without lockdown. Our main feature is an expert guide to scouting landscape locations, and by giving it a read (p32) you’ll be ready to shoot stunning scenes when the curtain lifts and life begins to get back to “normal”. Even if you can’t travel far, your local landscapes are likely brimming with possibilities. Learn to read maps, use planning apps, and identify the best compositions – all before leaving the house.

Mikkel Beiter Image title: Soak In The Last Light What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? I used a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM, Sirui tripod, NiSi V5 filter system, NiSi 0.9 Soft Grad ND filter, and also a NiSi 10-stop ND filter. How did you decide on the composition? For this composition, I have used the shorelines in the fjord below the mountain as leading lines. I used a 10-stop filter to create motion in the clouds and have them lead into the photo as well. What do you like most about the image? If you look closely, you can see tiny villages lit by the light on the left island. So beautiful! Did you do much post-processing? Minor work in Lightroom. A lot of work…

She based this shoot on the TV show of the same name, and it took over a year to plan, from idea to shoot. “I like to keep my actual shoots quite fluid,” she says. “I’m primarily a natural-light shooter and love to watch how light shifts and changes. Sometimes that means that an image I had planned doesn’t work,…
