Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've contributed 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's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead when you shoot those beautiful pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. In the event you need great photos that are real, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens this could get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not manage to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 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. Only continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are searching for a more economical option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality is not so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The top time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting provides the greatest result and is just right. The issue with brilliant day light is that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and can produce a lot of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall 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 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to improve the look of you photos. Look for 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.
