Landscape Photography Suggestions - The best way to Shoot Great Pictures
If you're have a digital compact and like most camera owners, this is your camera's time to beam. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera pick, only because they offer a far greater depth of field but in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some great landscape pictures will be to set your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the most important keys to shooting great pictures is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sunset (unless you are shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and subdued highlights.
For spectacular shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Accentuate the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important element of any good picture is composition. Below are some composition tips for perfect landscape photographs.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you are taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the topic of the majority of interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a dramatic sky.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from river or the obvious road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your picture so 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 topic of your photograph.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be alternative line or a road as stated above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the chief subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the audience longer with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, clutter might be a heap of branches or something such as power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. In the event that you can't get the shot you need without the mess, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That's it! There is always more to learn with photography, but just by following the hints above you can begin taking extremely great images of your favorite landscapes.
