Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are so many top photographers who've brought 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 is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, 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 take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you like real great pictures, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This can get troublesome if you're employing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Should you have a DSLR, then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're searching for a cheaper choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite essential. The top time for landscape is either dusk or dawn. The natural lighting provides the top result and is just right. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it can create lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This anything or boat suitable, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to enhance the look of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
