I'm not really a landscape person . I shoot portraits and macro more . When I started photography, I thought landscape was the easiest to do among the other fields but I was wrong ! You have to be patient and wait for that perfect light. It really helps to have a very stable and reliable tripod.
In our recent family summer outing, I tried my hand on near infrared photography. A good thing about IR is that you don't have to wake up early or wait for a golden sunset to shoot. Best time is when the sun is high up ( 10 am - 2 pm ).
Borrowed an IR720 filter from a friend and I attached it to a sigma 10-20 mm lens. One problem I encountered is that this lens causes a hot spot in the middle. Some lens coatings are not designed for infrared light, this one included. I had better results with my 24 - 105 mm. Another tip , don't forget to wear a hat or cap and don't forget the sunblock : )

Learned from the best photographers in the Philippines - Jun Miranda, Ibarra Deri, Tilak Hettige, Xander Angeles to name a few .
