Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead guidelines you have to keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you want good pictures that are actual, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are using a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this can get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't be able to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, should you possess a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just keep in mind you necessitate a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're looking for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very essential. The very best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The issue with bright day light is that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and may produce lots of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Yet remember 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 post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything proper. This will give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
