Landscape Images Tips - How to Shoot Great Photographs

If you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to glow. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, only because they provide a better depth of field however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these tips and all you have to do to get some amazing landscape photos will be to place your compact to landscape mode.

Remember one of the very important keys to shooting good photos is the characteristic of light.

For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sunset (unless you are shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colours and dim highlights.

For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.

Accentuate the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a powerful blue sky.

To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.

The next most important component of any good picture is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.

Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.

Fill two thirds of your frame with 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 river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your picture so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the subject of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition with a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as stated previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary issue (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.

Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, litter may be a heap of branches or something like an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, in the event that you can't get the picture you desire without the jumble.

That's it! There is always more to learn with photography, but merely by following the tips above you can start shooting extremely good graphics of your favourite landscapes.
