Tips to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you take those stunning pics guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you would like real photographs that are great, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're employing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens, this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not have the ability to capture the entire 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). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event you possess a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a more affordable alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality is not too good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the greatest result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and can generate plenty of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or anything or boat proper. This will give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to improve the look of you pictures. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
