Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead when you shoot those beautiful pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you prefer actual photographs that are great, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are using a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot this could get annoying. 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 isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you possess a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a more economical option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not too great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The top time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just right and provides the greatest result. The problem with brilliant day light is the fact that it can generate lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

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