Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly 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 mountain, a meandering river, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead when you take those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. Should you prefer great photographs that are actual, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens, this can get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, if you possess 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, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you necessitate 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 cheaper choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality isn't so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The top time for landscape is either dusk 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 plenty of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

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