About the tutorial

I'm Daniel Kordan and I'm a full-time landscape photographer. Prior to this, I used to be a scientist and photography was my hobby.

For years I observed and taught thousands of students who were struggling with some very important aspects of landscape and nature photography. Among those struggles were, for example: how to scout for new unknown locations, how to be in the right place at the right time when shooting landscapes, how to master composition, or how to control exposure in difficult situations, and how to develop your own style. I had those struggles myself in the beginning of my career. Learn exactly how I do it and how YOU can do the same or better.
