What do you need in the way of landscape photography equipment? In this free video, professional outdoor photographer Ian Plant will show you what he uses to capture memorable landscape images.

“You don’t need a lot of gear, gizmos, and gadgets,” he explains, “just a camera and a wide angle lens.” However, Ian recommends three basic accessories. First, a sturdy, lightweight tripod for capturing low light scenes at twilight or sunset. Second, a remote trigger, allowing you to prevent camera vibrations. Third, an L bracket for easily switching from horizontal to vertical formats.

Join pro shooter Ian Plant as he gives you tips on selecting the right landscape photography equipment.

    I would not leave the camera strap on the camera. It adds to camera movement.

    Why no mention of a polariser filter?surely that is in the top 3 must haves' can get by without a L bracket very easily or even a remote trigger as long as the exposure time is not over 30 seconds, whereas a polariser filter is critical as it can not be replicated in any software programme.So to me the tripod is a must have along with a polariser filter and a good lens would be my top 3 for landscapes, camera body not that important either,:) thanks.
