Landscape Images Hints - How to Shoot Great Photos
In case you're have a digital compact and like the majority of camera owners, this is your camera's time to shine. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the clear camera pick, only because they provide a far greater depth of field but when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these tips and all you have to do to get some fantastic landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode.
Recall one of the most important keys to shooting great pictures is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of warmth, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

For dimmed highlights and intensified colors, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.
Improve the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden fall leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any picture that is great is composition. Here are some composition strategies for perfect landscape photos.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you are shooting a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame with all the subject of the majority of interest, if it be a remarkable sky or an interesting foreground.
Search for lines. These could be anything from the apparent road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your shot so the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph.

Frame the composition with a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, mess might be a load of branches or something like an airplane or power line overhead or rubbish can on the ground. If you can't get the picture you want without the jumble, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That's it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but merely by following the advice above you can begin taking really great images of your favorite landscapes.
