Tricks to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give astounding results. Actually there are so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead guidelines you need to keep in mind when you take those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In the event you prefer actual photos that are great, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This can get frustrating if you are using a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently won't manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not so great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting provides the top result and is just correct. The problem with brilliant day light is that it can generate a lot of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the appearance of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
