Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give astounding results. In reality there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead when you shoot those beautiful pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. In the event you want actual good photos, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This may get frustrating if you are using a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't manage to capture the entire 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). Should you own a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear in mind you need a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you are searching for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality is not too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely crucial. The very best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it may generate lots of glare, and can give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet remember that using a CPL will reduce 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 had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
