Tricks to Stunning 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 so many top photographers who have contributed so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to really 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 mountain, a meandering river, a beautiful rainbow, a crimson red sundown or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather when you shoot those stunning pics guidelines you must keep in mind.
1. The Angle of view: This is a major criterion. If you need real good pictures, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a standard zoom lens or a point and shoot this could 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 is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). If you have a DSLR, then you definitely can certainly use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized. A great wide angle is the principle 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. 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 quite expensive. If you are looking for a cheaper option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are economical, but the image quality isn't too good. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite crucial. The very best time for landscape is either dawn or dusk. The natural lighting is just right and offers the very best result. The dilemma with brilliant day light is the fact that it may give your photos a washed out look, and may produce plenty of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Nevertheless remember 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 might be a tree, or anything or boat proper. This will definitely give greater depth to your photos and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to boost the appearance of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of manner this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
