Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. If you would like great photographs that are real, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're searching for a more affordable option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the very best result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out look, and may produce lots of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Yet recall 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: get a subject in the fore ground As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything suitable, or might be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the look of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
