Landscape Pictures Tips - The best way to Shoot Great Photographs
In case you're like the majority of camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to shine. For serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera choice, only because they offer a better depth of field, however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these tips and all you have to do to get some amazing landscape pictures will be to set your streamlined to landscape mode.
Remember one of the most crucial keys to shooting great pictures is the characteristic of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

For intensified colors and dimmed highlights, shoot under an overcast sky.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for spectacular shadows.
Enrich the qualify of your image by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden autumn leafed trees against a blue sky that is powerful, and add play.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most significant element of any picture that is good is composition. Below are some composition strategies for landscape pictures that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon appears straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting a horizon.
Fill two-thirds of your frame with all the subject of most interest, whether it be an interesting foreground or a dramatic sky.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the obvious road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your picture so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains which are the topic of your photograph, for instance.

Frame the composition with a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as mentioned previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the chief subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, brings the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the audience more with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more pleasing to view.
Look out for jumble. In a landscape photograph, jumble might be a pile of branches or something such as power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can't get the picture you desire without the jumble.
That is it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but merely by following the hints above you can start taking really great pictures of your favourite landscapes.
