Landscape Photography Suggestions - The best way to Shoot Great Pictures
In case you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the apparent camera choice, because they offer a better depth of field, but in regards to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some amazing landscape photos is to place your compact to landscape mode and follow these tips.
Remember one of the very important keys to shooting great pictures is the quality of light.
For lighting that is soft, even and has a touch of heat, shoot your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the past hour before sunset (unless you are taking sunset images.

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

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point could be a road or alternative line as stated previously, a tree, man, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the chief topic (the landscape is),but it adds depth, lures the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and much more enjoyable to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, mess might be a pile of branches or something similar to power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. In the event you can't get the picture you want without the litter, use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it.
That's it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but only by following the hints above you can begin taking really good pictures of your favorite landscapes.
