Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. In fact there are so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are definite rules or instead when you take those pics that are beautiful guidelines you should keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you would like actual pictures that are great, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently won't be able to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you possess a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the rule 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. Just bear in mind you necessitate a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're looking for a more economical option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality isn't too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The top time for landscape is either dusk or dawn. The natural lighting is just right and offers the best result. The issue with bright day light is the fact that it can give your photos a washed out look, and can create a lot of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Yet 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything suitable, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to enhance the look of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that this road or river appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
