Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really 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 meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you shoot those pics that are beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame, in the event you prefer actual good pictures. If you are using a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently won't manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you own a DSLR. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you need a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality isn't so great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The very best time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and provides the best result. The dilemma with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and can generate lots of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However remember 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 post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or anything or boat proper. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to boost the appearance of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
