Landscape Digital Photography Hints - The best way to Shoot Great Pictures
If you are like the majority of camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to glow. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the obvious camera pick, only because they offer a better depth of field, but as it pertains to landscapes, compact cameras rule. Follow these strategies and all you have to do to get some excellent landscape photographs will be to set your compact to landscape mode.
Recall one of the very important keys to shooting good photographs is the quality of light.
For lighting that's soft, even and has a touch of warmth, take your landscape photographs during the Golden Hours: the first hour after daybreak and the last hour before sunset (unless you're shooting sunset pictures.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colors and dimmed highlights.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for remarkable shadows.
Accentuate the qualify of your image and add drama by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and gold fall leafed trees against a strong blue sky.
To get an ultra soft effect, almost ethereal effect, shoot on a foggy day.
The next most important element of any good picture is composition. Below are some composition tips for landscape photos that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, interesting angles have their place in photography, but not when you're shooting a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame together with the subject of the majority of interest, if it be an interesting foreground or a spectacular sky.
Look for lines. These could be anything from river or the apparent road to a shadow running along sand dunes. If your image has lines, try framing your shot so that the important lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, for example, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph.

Frame the composition using a stage of interest in the foreground. This focal point might be other line or a road as stated previously, a tree, individual, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the primary subject (the landscape is),but it adds depth, attracts the viewer into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, thus engaging the viewer longer with your photograph. Simply speaking, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for mess. In a landscape photograph, jumble may be a pile of branches or something similar to power line overhead or an airplane or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it, in the event you can not get the picture you need without the mess.
That's it! There's always a lot more to learn with photography, but just by following the suggestions above you can begin shooting really great pictures of your favorite landscapes.
