Suggestions to Beautiful Landscape Pictures
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is only 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 particular rules or instead guidelines you should keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. Should you want real pictures that are good, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a point and shoot or a regular zoom lens this may get annoying. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't have the ability 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'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, in the event that you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Just continue in mind you are in need of a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you are looking for a more affordable choice, you may use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are affordable, but the image quality is not so great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely critical. The best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and provides the greatest result. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it may give your photos a washed out look, and may produce a lot of glare. This is often rectified 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: As I had mentioned in my earlier article on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This boat or anything proper, or could be a tree. This will give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a super trick to boost the look of you photos. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
