Landscape Images Hints - How to Shoot Great Photographs
If you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera pick, however in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they offer a better depth of field. All you have to do to get some great landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these tips.
Recall one of the very important keys to taking great photos is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the past hour before sunset (unless you are taking sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for dimmed highlights and intensified colors.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.
Enhance the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant component of any good picture is composition. Below are some composition tips for perfect landscape photographs.
Compose your landscape picture so that the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with all the subject of the majority of interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a remarkable sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from the apparent road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your picture so the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, if your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be alternative line or a road as stated above, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the main topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more pleasing to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, clutter may be something such as power line overhead or an airplane or a pile of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can't get the shot you need without the litter.
That's it! There's always more to learn with photography, but just by following the advice above you can start taking extremely great images of your favorite landscapes.
