Hints to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In reality there are really so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what is 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 sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or instead guidelines you should keep in mind when you take those beautiful pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. Should you want good pictures that are real, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're using a conventional zoom lens or a point and shoot this could get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not have the ability to capture the whole 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 have a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just keep in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are quite expensive. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality isn't so good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The very best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting offers the greatest result and is just correct. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it can generate plenty of glare, and can give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified using a circular polariser. Nonetheless 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 had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything suitable, or might 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 enhance the look of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
