Landscape Pictures Suggestions - The best way to Shoot Great Pictures
In the event you are like most camera owners and have a digital compact, this is your camera's time to beam. For most serious photographers, an SLR or DSLR is the apparent camera pick, only because they offer a much better depth of field however when it comes to landscapes, compact cameras rule. All you have to do to get some great landscape photographs will be to place your compact to landscape mode and follow these strategies.
Remember one of the very important keys to taking great pictures 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 dawn and the last hour before sundown (unless you're shooting sunset images.

Under an overcast sky, shoot for intensified colours and subdued highlights.
Under a cloudy sky, shoot for dramatic shadows.
Enhance the qualify of your image and add play by photographing a landscape scene with contrast; for example, red and golden 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 significant component of any great picture is composition. Here are a few composition strategies for landscape pictures that are perfect.
Compose your landscape picture so the horizon seems straight. Creative, entertaining angles have their place in photography, but not when you're taking a horizon.
Fill two thirds of your frame with the topic of the majority of interest, if it be a spectacular sky or an interesting foreground.
Try to find lines. These could be anything from the obvious road or river to a shadow running along sand dunes. In case your image has lines, try framing your picture so the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest, a road winding its way to the mountains that are the topic of your photograph, for example.

Frame the composition with a point of interest in the foreground. This focal point could possibly be other line or a road as stated above, a tree, person, animal, house, etc. The focal point will not be the main theme (the landscape is),but it adds depth, draws the audience into the image and gives the eyes a place to rest, so engaging the audience more with your photograph. In summary, a focal point makes your landscape photo more interesting and more enjoyable to view.
Look out for litter. In a landscape photograph, mess may be something like an airplane or power line overhead or a stack of branches or rubbish can on the ground. Use a decent photo editor like Photoshop to remove it if you can not get the shot you need without the jumble.
That's it! There is always a lot more to learn with photography, but just by following the tips above you can start shooting really good graphics of your favorite landscapes.
