Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It could 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 particular rules or instead guidelines you must keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. Then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, in case you would like actual great photographs. This may get troublesome if you are utilizing a point and shoot or a standard zoom lens. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not be able 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Should you possess a DSLR, then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you require 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 affordable option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are inexpensive, but the image quality is not too good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very crucial. The best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the very best result. The issue with bright day light is that it may create a lot of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This can be 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 boat or anything proper, or might be a tree. This will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
