Nailing the Focus in Landscape Photography
|"How do you get such sharp landscape photos?"
This is one of the most common questions I'm asked, and one of the most difficult to answer! There are so many factors involved in nailing the focus in Landscape Photography, so I've created an in-depth video to address them all.
We will do a deep-dive into focusing - everything from camera settings, to what to focus on, the differences in lens types and how to focus stack images. It is NOT a physics lecture! This 90-min video is a presentation of practical information from a hands-on perspective.
You'll also receive a summary document, and you will have access to the video for two weeks.

Recent Video Workshop Review:
“Nailing the focus in landscape photography” - what a great workshop! I learnt so many important tips to elevate my skills that I wish that I had known sooner. What I have learnt from Mieke in a couple of hours is going to make a big difference to my photography and I can’t wait to get out and put these new skills into practice.
The workshop is presented in a way that is easy to follow with great examples to assist with understanding. The course notes that you can print off complement the video and make it so easy to follow. This workshop was absolute value for money, and I thoroughly enjoyed this mode of learning. The ability to replay it over a couple of weeks is perfect so you can enjoy and learn at your own pace.
I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn more about landscape photography from Mieke, it was excellent!
"Nailing the Focus in Landscape Photography" was previously run as an online Zoom workshop.
Here are some participant reviews for the live Workshop sessions:
"I found this workshop to be incredibly helpful for improving my landscape photography. I learnt things I did not know before, and it surprised me. I particularly enjoyed the workshop because Mieke used several of her own stunning landscape images to illustrate the focus points she would choose, and why, and she also challenged participants to give their thoughts. The workshop covers a lot of essential information for landscape photography but I felt the pace was perfect for me, with enough detail but not so much that it was overwhelming. I was able to follow Mieke's explanations easily; she is an excellent teacher. The accompanying notes are really clear and comprehensive. I will definitely do more of Mieke's workshops, whether live or on zoom if we are confined to lockdown. Thank you Mieke!"
“This is the second workshop of Mieke's that I've done - she is a great teacher and delivers information in a structured and enthusiastic way. She is a very personable lady and I found it easy and enjoyable to watch and listen to all her excellent teachings. She is incredibly knowledgeable in photography and there is absolutely nothing that you couldn't ask her! This topic is complex and there's a huge amount of information about it - Mieke explained the confusing bits very well with simplified analogies in a way that was easy to understand and remember. I also especially liked the extras - links to other people and topics she referred to in the workshop, giving individual information for each attendee's camera brand and other information we might find useful. I would thoroughly recommend Mieke's workshops to any photography enthusiast."
"If you are a keen landscape photographer, then you will find this course invaluable. Mieke has a wonderful way of sharing her knowledge is both a simple and informative way. I would highly recommend this course for someone who is keen to keep improving and refining their techniques for taking photographs in the landscape.”
"I recently participated in one of Mieke's zoom session on 'Nailing the Focus.' The material was well prepared and presented. It was a hands on practical in that Mieke took time to make sure that we could all find the necessary settings on our different cameras. The material was well presented with repetition on the important aspects that she wanted to get across. Thank you Mieke, it was a very useful session."
"This is the first workshop I have done with Mieke. I found it easy to follow, very informative and comprehensive and she was very willing to answer questions along the way. The accompanying notes were also well presented and meant you didn't have to furiously write everything down. Particularly liked her examples of photos and discussing where to focus."
