Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
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 so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those beautiful pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In the event you like great photos that are real, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens this can get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the capacity to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, should you have a DSLR. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're searching for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality is not too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The very best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting offers the greatest result and is just correct. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and may create a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground As I 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you photos. Look for 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 gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
