Beyond the Iconic

Watched Landscape Outdoor Photography | Going Beyond the Iconic Shots by Scott Kranz from

Many of our natural destinations, whether reached by road or trail, culminate in iconic vantage points where a classic photograph lays itself out for you. A common pitfall for outdoor photographers is to capture the iconic scene and call it a day. In this video, I talk about going beyond the iconic shot and instead working a scene so as to find unique compositions that are truly your own.

Interesting to see how he approaches a shoot and what he’s thinking as he selects compositions. I like his style of talking to the camera.
