Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photos
Landscape photography is a favourite genre amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and carried out correctly it can give results that are astounding. In reality there are so many top photographers who've brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it has now grown to really have a life of its own. Anyways leaving aside all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It may 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 definite rules or rather guidelines you have to keep in mind when you take those beautiful pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In case you like good photographs that are actual, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. This could get frustrating if you're using a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore will not manage 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 will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you certainly can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, if you have a DSLR. A good wide angle is the rule 10-22 mm lens that I use (Of course you'll be able to use it only with Cannon, but there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Only continue in mind you need a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very expensive. If you're looking for a more economical alternative, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality is not too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The very best time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just right and offers the top result. The problem with brilliant day light is that it may produce lots of glare, and will give your photos a washed out look. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless 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: get a subject in the fore ground, As I had mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This might be a tree, or anything or boat appropriate. This make for a better composition and will definitely give greater depth to your photographs.
4. Lastly it is a superb trick to improve the appearance of you pictures. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in such a style that river or this road seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
