Tips to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give astounding results. In reality there are so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly 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 mountain, a meandering river, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead guidelines you have to keep in mind when you shoot those beautiful pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you want great pictures that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Should you possess a DSLR, then you definitely can 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 keep 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 costly. If you're looking for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality isn't so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely crucial. The top time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting provides the greatest result and is just right. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out look, and may generate lots of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However remember that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
