Coming to you from Chris Sale, this helpful video will show you how to plan a landscape photography shoot. Modern tech has come quite a long way in the last decade or so, and there are now numerous programs and smartphone apps to help you precisely plan images. One of my favorites is the AR tool in PhotoPills. This allows you to point your phone at anything and see an overlay of future positions of things like the sun and moon, making it incredible straightforward to find exactly the right moment for the image you have in mind. There are many such apps; it is definitely worth getting one for your work. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sale.
