Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead guidelines you need to keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. Should you'd like real pictures that are good, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore 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 use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you require a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're looking for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The very best time for landscape is either dusk or dawn. The natural lighting offers the best result and is just right. The problem with bright day light is that it may produce lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to enhance the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
