Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
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 so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson 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 should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. Then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, should you need real good pictures. If you are utilizing a regular zoom lens or a point and shoot this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you possess a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're searching for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The top time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting offers the very best result and is just right. The issue with bright day light is that it may create plenty of glare, and can give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

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 might be a tree, or anything or boat proper. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to enhance the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
