Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
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 fact there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you must keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In the event you prefer actual photos that are great, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't 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'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 only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply bear in mind you need 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 option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't too great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The top time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting provides the very best result and is just correct. The problem with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out look, and can generate plenty of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall 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 anything or boat appropriate, or might be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way this road or river seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
