Landscape Pictures Suggestions - How to Take Great Photos
If you're like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera pick, however in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule since they provide a better depth of field. All you need to do to get some amazing landscape photos will be to set your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these tips.
Remember one of the most important keys to shooting good photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and dimmed highlights.
For dramatic shadows, shoot under a cloudy sky.
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 strong, and add drama.
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. Below are some composition tips for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you are taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame together with the subject of the majority of interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Search for lines. These could be anything from the apparent road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your picture so that the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be alternative line or a road as stated above, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary subject (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 longer with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, jumble may be a heap of branches or something similar to 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 shot you need without the mess.
That is it! There is always more to learn with photography, but only by following the suggestions above you can start shooting extremely good pictures of your favourite landscapes.
