Hints to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead guidelines you need to keep in mind when you take those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you would like great photos that are real, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a typical zoom lens this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore won't have the capacity to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly 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 which I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you necessitate a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are looking for a more affordable option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting provides the very best result and is just right. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and may produce a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. However 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 boat or anything suitable, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photos.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the look of you photos. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
