Using Google Earth to Find Unique Landscape Photography Locations

In this video, you'll learn how Austin James Jackson uses Google Earth to find and research unique landscape photography compositions.

Focusing on Zion National Park, he demonstrates how to identify potential opportunities using a combination of the Google Earth top down view and in person view. Having identified a promising spot, Austin follows through with his process by actually visiting the location in person, sharing on location footage and his resulting frame.

How to find and create original compositions is one of the most popular questions we get asked here at Light & Landscape. And rightly so! It's absolutely essential to standing out from the crowd and creating authenticity in our images as landscape photographers.

Austin's process is one of the simplest yet most comprehensive solutions I have come across for finding unique frames in both well trodden and less explored locations. It comes highly recommended.
