Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. Actually there are so many top photographers who have brought 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's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could 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 beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. Should you need real photographs that are good, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This may get annoying if you are employing a regular zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not have the ability 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply bear in mind you necessitate a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're searching for a cheaper option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality isn't too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and offers the best result. The problem with bright day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out look, and can produce a lot of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless remember 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 had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This might be a tree, or boat or anything proper. This will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
