Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give astounding results. Actually there are so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather when you shoot those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you need great photographs that are actual, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're using a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens, this may get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event that you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but 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 may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality is not so great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting offers the very best result and is just right. The problem with brilliant day light is the fact that it can create plenty of glare, and will give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to boost the appearance of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
