Tricks to Stunning Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give results that are astounding. Actually there are really 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 aside all this, what is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad mountain, a meandering river, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sunset 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 stunning.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. In the event you'd like great photographs that are actual, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you're utilizing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens, this could get troublesome. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and consequently won't have the capacity 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 that you own a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only bear 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 are searching for a cheaper alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are affordable, but the image quality is not too great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite vital. The very best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting offers the greatest result and is just right. The dilemma with brilliant day light is that it will give your photos a washed out appearance, and can create a lot of glare. This can be rectified using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall 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 article on rule of thirds. This could be a tree, or boat or anything proper. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to enhance the appearance of you photographs. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a manner this road or river seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
