Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you shoot those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you'd like good photographs that are actual, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This can get annoying if you're employing a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, should you possess a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're searching for a more affordable choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality is not so great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting offers the best result and is just correct. The dilemma with bright day light is that it can create lots of glare, and can give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. However remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or anything or boat suitable. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to boost the appearance of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
