Tricks to Beautiful Landscape Photographs
Landscape photography is a genre that is favourite amongst many photographers, including me and if composed and implemented properly it can give astounding results. In fact there are really so many top photographers that have contributed 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 is landscape photography. Landscape photography is just photography of landscapes. It could be a snow clad a meandering river, mountain, a lovely rainbow, a crimson red sunset or a placid lake. Whatever be the scene, there are particular rules or rather guidelines you should keep in mind when you shoot those stunning pics.
1. The Angle of view: This is an important standard. In the event you would like real photos that are good, then you will need to get as a lot of the landscape in your frame. If you are employing a point and shoot or a conventional zoom lens this could get troublesome. 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 is not much you can do except make use of the panorama mode (I'll talk in detail about the panorama mode). Then you can certainly use one of the specialized wide angle lenses, should you own a DSLR. A good wide angle is the principle 10-22 mm lens which I use (Of course you can use it only with Cannon, however there are wide angle lenses available for all mounts. Simply 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 very costly. If you are looking for a more economical option, you can use any one of the wide angle adaptors. All these are cheap, but the image quality is not so good. So itis a trade off.
2. Time of shoot: This is extremely vital. The top time for landscape is either twilight or morning. The natural lighting is just right and offers the very best result. The issue with brilliant day light is the fact that it may give your photos a washed out appearance, and can produce lots of glare. This can be rectified by using a circular polariser. Yet 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: As I 'd mentioned in my earlier post on rule of thirds, get a subject in the fore ground. This could be a tree, or boat or anything suitable. This will definitely give greater depth to your pictures and make for a better composition.
4. Lastly this really is a superb trick to enhance the look of you photos. Locate a road or meandering river and compose your picture in this type of way this road or river seems to either leaving or entering the photo. This gives a great aesthetic appeal to the photo.
