Tips to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. Actually there are really 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 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 when you shoot those stunning pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame, should you prefer actual good photos. This may get troublesome if you are using a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't 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 definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, should you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you are in need of a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're looking for a more affordable option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality is not so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very crucial. The very best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting provides the top result and is just correct. The dilemma with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and may produce lots of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless remember that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground, As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This anything or boat suitable, or might be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
