Landscape Digital Photography Hints - The best way to Shoot Great Photos
In case you're have a digital compact and like most camera owners, this is your camera's time to glow. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera choice, because they offer a far greater depth of field however in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some great landscape photographs will be to place your compact to landscape mode and follow these tips.
Recall one of the main keys to shooting great photographs is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the past hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

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

Frame the composition using a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be other line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the main theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, jumble could be something like an airplane or power line overhead or a heap of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can't get the shot you want without the litter.
That is it! There is always more to learn with photography, but only by following the advice above you can begin shooting extremely good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
