Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photos

Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are stunning.

1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. If you would like great photos that are real, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the ability to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you have a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only keep 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 looking for a more economical choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality isn't so good. So it's a trade off.

2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The very best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the greatest result. The problem with bright day light is that it may produce plenty of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless remember 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: As I had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or anything or boat proper. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.

4. Lastly it is a super trick to boost the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
