Landscape Pictures Tips - The way to Shoot Great Photographs

For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, because they offer a better depth of field however as it pertains to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these strategies and all you need to do to get some amazing landscape photos will be to set your compact to landscape mode.
Recall one of the most important keys to shooting good pictures is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you are shooting sunset pictures.

For dim highlights and intensified colors, shoot under an overcast sky.
For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
Enrich the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful, and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important element of any picture that is good is composition. Here are some composition strategies for landscape photographs that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the subject of the majority of interest, whether it be a dramatic sky or an interesting foreground.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the obvious road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your shot so the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, if your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be a road or alternative line as mentioned previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, jumble might be a pile of branches or something similar to an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can not get the picture you need without the mess.
That is it! There's always more to learn with photography, but merely by following the tips above you can begin taking really great images of your favourite landscapes.
