Earlier this year, I visited a bunch of gorgeous locations throughout the southwest US. If you want to know what it’s like to have your jaw drop wide open, just head over to areas like White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs of Arizona. I honestly have never seen landscapes quite like the ones over there.

I thought it’d be fun to share a video I put together where I walk through my entire composition and editing processes for one of the photos I took at White Pocket. Here’s a teaser before/after image followed by the video itself. As always, feel free to leave any questions in the Comments section.
