Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. If you want actual great photos, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This can get annoying if you are using a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you own a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just bear in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you are searching for a more economical alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality is not too good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely critical. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the very best result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and can create plenty of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. However remember 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything appropriate, or might be a tree. This will give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
