Landscape Photography Hints - The way to Take Great Photos

If you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the clear camera choice, because they provide a much better depth of field, however as it pertains to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some great landscape pictures is to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these tips.

Remember one of the main 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 daybreak and the past hour before sundown (unless you are shooting sunset pictures.

For intensified colors and subdued highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.

For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.

Enrich the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful, and add drama.

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. Here are some composition strategies for landscape photographs that are perfect.

Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting 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 remarkable sky.

Try to find lines. These could be anything from river or the apparent road to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your picture so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, for example.

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be alternative line or a road as stated above, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.

Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, mess could be something like an airplane or power line overhead or a stack of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event you can not get the shot you desire without the litter.

That is it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but merely by following the suggestions above you can start shooting really great pictures of your favourite landscapes.
