Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and executed properly it can give astounding results. Actually there are really so many top photographers that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only photography of landscapes. It may be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead guidelines you must keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major standard. In the event you want real great photographs, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This may get frustrating if you're employing a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and hence will not manage to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there isn't much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). In the event you possess a DSLR, then you certainly can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses. A great wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply bear in mind you need a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are looking for a more economical alternative, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality isn't too great. So it is a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just correct and provides the very best result. The problem with brilliant day light is that it may create plenty of glare, and may give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless recall that using a CPL will reduce the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

3. Get a subject in the foreground: As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a super trick to improve the look of you pictures. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a way that this road or river appears to either leaving or entering the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
