Landscape Photography Hints - The best way to Take Great Pictures
If you're have a digital compact and like the majority of camera owners, this is your camera's time to beam. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the apparent camera choice, only because they provide a far greater depth of field, but in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some excellent landscape photographs is to place your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the main keys to shooting good photographs is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sunset (unless you are taking sunset pictures.

For dimmed highlights and intensified colours, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Improve the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any good picture is composition. Below are some composition strategies for landscape photographs that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with the topic of most interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a dramatic sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the obvious road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your shot so that the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be alternative line or a road as mentioned above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience longer with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, litter may be a load of branches or something similar to power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, in the event you can't get the picture you need without the mess.
That is it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but merely by following the hints above you can start shooting really good pictures of your favorite landscapes.
