Suggestions 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 fact there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you like actual good photos, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot this could get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not have the capacity 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 certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can 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 range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a more economical alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't so great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the very best result. The problem with brilliant day light is the fact that it can generate lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However 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: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This will give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
