Landscape Photography Tips - How to Take Great Pictures
In the event you're have a digital compact and like most camera owners, this is your camera's time to shine. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the apparent camera selection, but as it pertains to landscapes, compact cameras rule only because they provide a much better depth of field. All you need to do to get some excellent landscape photos is to set your streamlined to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the main keys to taking good photos is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sundown (unless you are taking sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for subdued highlights and intensified colors.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for remarkable shadows.
Improve the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and gold fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is strong and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any picture that is good is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for perfect landscape pictures.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, fun angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting 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.
Search for lines. These could be anything from river or the clear road to a shadow running along sand dunes. Try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for instance, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, if your image has lines.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or alternative line as mentioned previously, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the main theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience longer with your photograph. In short, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, litter may be a stack of branches or something such as an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. In the event that you can not get the picture you desire without the jumble, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That is it! There is always more to learn with photography, but merely by following the hints above you can begin shooting really good images of your favorite landscapes.
