Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are really so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead when you take those pics that are stunning guidelines you must keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, in case you'd like actual good photographs. This can get frustrating if you're 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 have the capacity to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you possess a DSLR, then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just keep in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're looking for a more affordable choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely critical. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting offers the greatest result and is just right. The dilemma with bright day light is that it can give your photos a washed out look, and may produce a lot of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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 had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This boat or anything appropriate, or might be a tree. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
