Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has 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 a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you would like real great pictures, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get frustrating if you're utilizing a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't have the ability to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you possess a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A good wide angle is the canon 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 continue 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 cheaper option, you may 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 critical. The best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just right and offers the best result. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it can create lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless remember that using a CPL will reduce 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 could be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to improve the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
