Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers who have contributed 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 is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you take those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you like good photos that are real, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you possess a DSLR, then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are searching for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality isn't so great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The very best time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting provides the greatest result and is just correct. The problem with bright day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out appearance, and can create plenty of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless remember that using a CPL will reduce 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 post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything suitable, or could be a tree. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that this road or river seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
