Tips to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly 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 mountain, a meandering river, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead guidelines you have to keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you need actual good photos, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This can get frustrating if you're utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not have the ability 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you necessitate 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 affordable choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The very best time for landscape is either morning or dusk. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the top result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is that it may give your photos a washed out look, and can create a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However remember 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 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
