Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed correctly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are 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's 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 sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you shoot those beautiful pics guidelines you have to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you'd like good pictures that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this may get frustrating. 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 principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you need a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you're looking for a more economical option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't so great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very essential. The very best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and provides the greatest result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it may produce lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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: As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This might be a tree, or boat or anything proper. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
