Tips to Stunning Landscape Photos
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. Actually there are so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather when you shoot those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. In the event you need great pictures that are real, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get annoying if you are using a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently will not manage 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you own a DSLR, then you definitely can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. 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. Only 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 costly. If you are searching for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality isn't so good. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely essential. The best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting offers the very best result and is just right. The dilemma with bright day light is that it can produce lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out appearance. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless 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 'd mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or boat or anything appropriate. This will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to enhance the appearance of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
