Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are so many top photographers that have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you take those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. In the event you'd like good photos that are actual, then you will need to get as much of the landscape in your frame. This may get frustrating if you're using a typical zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus will not manage 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you own a DSLR, then you certainly can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you necessitate a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are searching for a more affordable alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality isn't so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very vital. The top time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting is just correct and offers the very best result. The issue with bright day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out look, and can produce a lot of glare. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet recall 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 'd 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 pictures.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to enhance the look of you photographs. Search for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner that river or this road appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
