Tricks to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give astounding results. In fact there are so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you take those beautiful pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you'd like actual good pictures, 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 annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you have a DSLR, then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A good wide angle is the rule 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. 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 expensive. If you are searching for a cheaper option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite essential. The top time for landscape is either dawn or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The problem with brilliant day light is that it can give your photos a washed out appearance, and can generate a lot of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

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 boat or anything appropriate, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to enhance the appearance of you pictures. Look 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 provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
