Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you take those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, should you prefer actual good pictures. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens, this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not have the ability 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply bear in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're searching for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't so great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very crucial. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting provides the best result and is just right. The problem with bright day light is that it can create a lot of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This anything or boat appropriate, or might be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to enhance the look of you pictures. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of manner that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
