Project Description

You don't always need to travel to breathtaking locations to take a great landscape photo. Learning to see the beauty in everything around you and capture it is a skill that is incredibly valuable as a photographer and can vastly increase the amount of "keeper" shots that you take.

I'd like you to go out to any of your favorite locations around you and see if you can capture and edit it in a way that truly shows off how remarkable it is. Of course, you can travel to any location you'd like, but the challenge of taking something "everyday" and making it truly spectacular is the kind of skill that will absolately take your skills to the next level!
