Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who've contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In the event you want great photos that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This could get frustrating if you are employing a regular zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, should you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply continue 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 are searching for a more affordable option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The top time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just right and offers the greatest result. The problem with brilliant day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and can produce plenty of glare. 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 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 post on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or anything or boat suitable. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to boost the look of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
