Tips to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are really so many top photographers who have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a lovely rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you must keep in mind when you shoot those pics that are beautiful.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. If you need great pictures that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this may get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not have the capacity to capture the entire landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event that you possess a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which 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 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 quite expensive. If you're looking for a more affordable choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not too good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The best time for landscape is either twilight or dawn. The natural lighting provides the best result and is just right. The problem with brilliant day light is that it can give your photos a washed out look, and can create lots of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. However recall that using a CPL will decrease 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 will definitely give greater depth to your photographs and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a super trick to enhance the look of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way that river or this road appears to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
