Landscape Pictures Hints - How to Take Great Photographs

If you're have a digital compact and like most camera owners, this is your camera's time to shine. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera selection, but when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they offer a much better depth of field. Follow these strategies and all you need to do to get some great landscape photographs is to set your streamlined to landscape mode.

Remember one of the main keys to taking good photographs is the characteristic of light.

For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photos 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 subdued highlights and intensified colors.

Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.

Improve the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful, and add play.

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

The next most important element of any good picture is composition. Here are a few composition tips for landscape pictures that are perfect.

Compose your landscape picture so 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 together with the subject of the majority of interest, whether it be a spectacular sky or an interesting foreground.

Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your shot so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be alternative line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.

Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, clutter might be a load of branches or something similar to power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, if you can not get the picture you want without the mess.

That's it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but just by following the tips above you can begin shooting extremely good pictures of your favorite landscapes.
