Landscape Photography Hints - The best way to Take Great Photos

In case you're like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera choice, because they offer a far greater depth of field, but when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you need to do to get some great landscape photographs would be to place your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.

Recall one of the very important keys to taking great pictures is the characteristic of light.

For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sunset (unless you're shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for subdued highlights and intensified colours.

For spectacular shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.

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

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 a few composition tips for perfect landscape photos.

Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.

Fill two thirds of your frame with the topic of most interest, whether it be a spectacular sky or an interesting foreground.

Try to find lines. These could be anything from river or the apparent 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, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the subject of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be alternative line or a road as stated above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary topic (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 summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.

Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, litter may be a heap of branches or something similar to power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it in the event you can't get the shot you need without the jumble.

That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but only by following the suggestions above you can start shooting extremely good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
