Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sundown 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 stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you like good photographs that are real, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens, this can get frustrating. 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 use the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you have a DSLR, then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're searching for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality is not so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely crucial. The very best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the top result. The problem with brilliant day light is the fact that it may produce lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
