Tricks to Stunning Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented correctly it can give astounding results. In reality there are really so many top photographers that have brought 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 simply photography of landscapes. It might be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a ruby red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or instead when you take those stunning pics guidelines you need to keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. Then you'll need to get as much of the landscape in your frame, should you need actual great pictures. If you are employing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this can get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and thus won't have the capacity to capture the whole landscape in your frame. In a point and shoot there is not much you can do except use the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, should you possess a DSLR. A great wide angle is the canon 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it just with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply keep in mind you are in need of a zoom in the range of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are searching for a more economical choice, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are economical, but the image quality isn't too great. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is very essential. The very best time for landscape is either morning or twilight. The natural lighting is just right and provides the very best result. The dilemma with bright day light is the fact that it will give your photos a washed out look, and may produce a lot of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will decrease the amount of light entering the sensor by two stops that are around.

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