Meri-Pori, Finland, 2014
Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt is more proof that "self taught" photographers can reach the same level of excellence as those with formal training. Lagerstedt's fabulous landscapes are a mixture of techniques; he sometimes uses compositing of differently timed exposures. He describes his process in detail, as well as giving tutorials, on his website.
See more of Lagerstedt's work both at his site and on Instagram. I highly recommend his blog for photography enthusiasts as well. -Via Colossal
