Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best nature shots in the Our Natural Photo contest with chances to win Daniel Kordan Tutorials and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Daniel Kordan for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. 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. So, I decided to create this tutorial to help to overcome those and many other challenges. This tutorial is full of tips, ideas, and knowledge that took me years of practice and dedication to acquire. Learn exactly how I do it and how YOU can do the same or better.
