I’ve been noticing a trend recently in people’s attitudes and perceptions on landscape and nature photography. I see it across different segments of people I talk to and work with—photographers on workshops, print buyers in galleries, people I follow and who follow me on social media, and just talking to friends on the street.
But I’m also seeing it in the industry as well, whether that be professional established photographers or leading magazines.
What trend am I talking about? The trend towards a more organic manipulation and processing of images, a return to reality, veracity, and hopefully art for art’s sake.
I’m getting a strong sense that the tides are changing against a heavy-handed approach to digital processing and manipulation. People are not impressed anymore with super saturation, or technical perfection, or perfectly exposed images where every tonality is perfectly captured and presented leaving little to the imagination.

I’m often asked what are some of the things I practice in order to improve my photography. There are many as you might imagine, but one that I’m constantly working on is patience. In fact, one of the things I see most often when I’m teaching workshops is a lack of patience.
