Landscape Images Hints - The way to Take Great Pictures

If you're have a digital compact and like the majority of camera owners, this is your camera's time to beam. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the noticeable camera pick, only because they provide a far greater depth of field, however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some amazing landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode and follow these tips.

Remember one of the very important keys to taking great pictures is the quality of light.

For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, shoot your landscape photos during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you're taking sunset images.

For intensified colors and dimmed highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.

Under a cloudy sky, shoot for remarkable shadows.

Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for instance, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a powerful blue sky.

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

The next most significant element of any great picture is composition. Below are some composition strategies for landscape photos that are perfect.

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

Fill two-thirds of your frame together with the topic of most interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.

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

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be other line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point won't be the principal theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.

Look out for clutter. In a landscape photograph, mess may be something such as power line overhead or an airplane or a pile of branches or rubbish can on the ground. If you can't get the shot you desire without the jumble, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.

That's it! There's always more to learn with photography, but merely by following the advice above you can begin shooting really great pictures of your favourite landscapes.
