Suggestions to Stunning Landscape Photographs
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 that have brought so much to the genre of landscape photography that it's now grown to truly have a life of its own. Anyways leaving apart all this, what's landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a beautiful rainbow, a meandering river, mountain, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are certain rules or rather guidelines you must keep in mind when you shoot those beautiful pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important criterion. In the event you like real good pictures, then you'll need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are utilizing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens, this may get frustrating. This is because these lenses have a narrow angle of view and therefore 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 use the panorama mode (I will talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can use one of the wide angle lenses that are specialized, in the event that you possess a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which 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 bear in mind you require a zoom in the scope of 10-20 mm). The one disadvantage of this is that these are very costly. If you are looking for a more affordable option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. These are cheap, but the image quality isn't too great. So it's a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is quite critical. The best time for landscape is either dusk or morning. The natural lighting provides the very best result and is just right. The issue with bright day light is the fact that it can generate lots of glare, and can give your photos a washed out look. This is often rectified by using a circular polariser. Nonetheless recall that using a CPL will decrease 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 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds. This boat or anything appropriate, or could be a tree. This make for a better composition and will give greater depth to your pictures.
4. Lastly this is a superb trick to improve the look of you photographs. Look for a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of style that river or this road seems to either entering or leaving the photo. This provides a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
