Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give astounding results. In fact there are so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's 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 could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you'd like real pictures that are great, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get frustrating if you are using a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't manage 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event you possess 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, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're searching for a more affordable option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality is not too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very essential. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the top result. The issue with brilliant day light is that it can give your photos a washed out look, and can create a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless 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 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This boat or anything proper, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the look of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
