Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give astounding results. Actually there are so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. Then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, in the event you would like actual great photographs. This could get troublesome if you are using a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence won't have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event you possess a DSLR. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're looking for a more economical option, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are inexpensive, but the image quality isn't too good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely crucial. The top time for landscape is either dawn or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the top result. The problem with bright day light is that it can give your photos a washed out look, and can generate plenty of glare. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless remember that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by around two stops.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This anything or boat proper, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to improve the look of you pictures. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
