Landscape Photography Tips - The best way to Shoot Great Photos

In the event you're like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera choice, only because they offer a much better depth of field, however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some great landscape photos will be to place your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these strategies.

Remember one of the main keys to shooting good photographs is the characteristic of light.

For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you are shooting sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for dimmed highlights and intensified colours.

Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.

Accentuate the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong.

To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.

The next most important component of any picture that is great is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.

Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.

Fill two thirds of your frame with the topic of the majority of interest, whether it be a spectacular sky or an interesting foreground.

Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your shot so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the subject of your photograph, in case your image has lines.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be other line or a road as stated previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the primary topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.

Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, jumble could be something like 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 not get the picture you desire without the mess.

That is it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the advice above you can begin taking extremely great images of your favorite landscapes.
