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 reality there are so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you want actual photographs that are great, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not be able 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). In the event that you have a DSLR, then you definitely can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the rule 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. Simply continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you are looking for a cheaper option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely critical. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting provides the very best result and is just correct. The problem with bright day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out appearance, and can generate lots of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless 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: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This anything or boat proper, or could be a tree. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
