Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, in the event you'd like real great photographs. This could get annoying if you are using a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very essential. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting offers the very best result and is just right. The issue with bright day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out look, and may produce plenty of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to improve the look of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
