Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are so many top photographers who've contributed 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's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. Should you would like actual good pictures, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This can get annoying if you are using a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently 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 use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a more affordable alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't too good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely crucial. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and offers the greatest result. The issue with brilliant day light is that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and may create plenty of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Yet recall 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: As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
