Landscape Photography Hints - The way to Shoot Great Pictures
If you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, because they offer a much better depth of field however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these tips and all you need to do to get some amazing landscape photos would be to place your compact to landscape mode.
Recall one of the very important keys to taking great pictures is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sundown (unless you are shooting sunset images.

For dimmed highlights and intensified colors, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant component of any good picture is composition. Here are some composition tips for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame together with the topic of most interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from the obvious road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the subject of your photograph, for example.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or alternative line as stated above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the principal subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, litter may be a heap of branches or something like power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. In the event you can't get the shot you want without the mess, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That's it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the tips above you can start shooting extremely great images of your favourite landscapes.
