Hints to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are so many top photographers who have contributed 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 might be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather when you shoot those pics that are stunning guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. Then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame, in case you'd like actual great photographs. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this could get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently won't have the ability to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you have a DSLR, then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue in mind you require 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 choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality is not too great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very crucial. The best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the best result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it may produce a lot of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet remember 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This will give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
