Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead guidelines you must keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In case you like good photographs that are real, then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you're employing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens this could get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't manage 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 that you have a DSLR, then you can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just bear in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're searching for a cheaper option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality isn't so 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 best result. The problem with bright day light is that it may create lots of glare, and may give your photos a washed out appearance. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

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 anything or boat appropriate, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
