Hints to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you must keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you need great photos that are real, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're using a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens, this could get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you have a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A good wide angle is the canon 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. Simply continue in mind you are in need of a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The top time for landscape is either dawn or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the best result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it can create lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless 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 had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will definitely give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to boost the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
