Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. Actually there are really so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead when you shoot those beautiful pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you need real photos that are good, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this can get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently 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 definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, if you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 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. Just bear 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 more affordable choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality is not so great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting is just right and provides the greatest result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it may generate lots of glare, and can give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall 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: As I had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or boat or anything proper. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to boost the appearance of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
