PROCESSED WITH THESE TECHNIQUES
SOME TECHNIQUES EXPLAINED

Google Earth.

Google Earth.

Google Earth needs no further introduction, especially among us landscape photographers. This free computer program, which renders satellite images of our earth, has been used with most of Max high panorama viewpoints. Max even claims that a trips success is already decided by the pre-planned trip locations with Google Earth. ''Without the use of Google Earth, I wouldn't be anywhere, in the field and as a successful landscape photographer'' 

When exploring an area for great photography spots you can look out for something that looks great - in Google Earth at least. However, when you approach it with Max Rive's 7 rules you can be certain of its success. Think about elements such as how the position of the sun will affect the light, the importance of an entry and/or exit point of the composition, the contours of the horizon, the presence of a for- and mid-ground and more. 

Pre-location Scouting.

Pre-location Scouting.

Panorama.

Panorama.

The field of view in Google Earth is pretty narrow. This can make it more difficult to judge the composition of a planned spot. Learn how to make panoramas of these planned spots by merging them together in a special way. See how to add the light source in it, which allows you to make a better judgment about the locations potential. 

WHY MAX MADE THIS TUTORIAL

...not all spots which look good in Google Earth - will also look good in the real world.

My best photos all began with my Google Earth Scouting. The feeling when finding something amazing is priceless. Yes, I'm talking about the feeling when sitting behind the computer, exploring landscapes with Google Earth. I use a certain workflow to find my photography locations in Google Earth This Google Earth Scouting workflow makes it easier to identify great landscape photography spots, but it also helps to increase the changes of really coming back with a great photo in the real world. That is because not all spots which look good in Google Earth - will also look good in the real world. In order to do that, I add the elements you can expect on the locations - such as a setting sun - and also create the exact composition by merging printscreens together. Looking around in Google Earth on the potential spot is not sufficient. When using my Google Earth Scouting techniques, I'm sure you will also be able to find high mountains views of a quality my panoramas are known for.

''I now always use them''

The Google Earth scouting tutorial is absolutely worth the money! It was very interesting to see how Max was using Google Earth to search for new landscape photography spots and which criteria’s have to be fulfilled to get epic shots. When I’m now searching for new landscape spots in my surrounding, I always try to include some of these Google-Earth criteria’s in my composition.

''in-depth explanation''

One thing that I loved so much from the Google-Earth scouting tutorial is how-to plan the shooting part. For me it is as important to learn how to plan the shooting before you get there and to know how to look for the advantage points for the best compositions. This Google Earth Scouting tutorial explains that in-depth which gives you a great benefit when scouting for locations yourself. I really enjoyed the techniques that make his photography so unique!
