Tips to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. Should you would like real photographs that are great, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This could get frustrating if you're utilizing a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the capacity 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you own a DSLR, then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the principle 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. Only bear in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality isn't too great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The top time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting is just right and offers the very best result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out appearance, and may create lots of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Yet 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 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This will give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to enhance the appearance of you pictures. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of manner that this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
