Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are so many top photographers that 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's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you must keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. Should you'd like great pictures that are actual, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens, this can get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not 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 wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event that you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range 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. 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 vital. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the top result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and can produce lots of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. However remember that using a CPL will reduce 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 proper, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to boost the appearance of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
