Landscape Photography Tips - The way to Take Great Photos
If you're like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera selection, since they offer a better depth of field however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some excellent landscape pictures would be to set your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the most crucial keys to shooting good photographs is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sunset (unless you are shooting sunset pictures.

For intensified colours and subdued highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
For spectacular shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold fall leafed trees against a strong blue sky.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any great picture is composition. Here are some composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the subject of most interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Search for lines. These could be anything from river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your photo so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph.

Frame the composition with a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or other line as mentioned previously, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the principal theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, litter might be a load of branches or something such as an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event that you can't get the picture you need without the clutter.
That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the hints above you can begin shooting really good images of your favourite landscapes.
