Yesterday we discussed light.

First we discussed the shade of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak and you must get up early in the morning. AND you need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sunset.

At those times there's a happening we'll call a 'fictitious' sunrise and sunset that could produce some absolutely beautiful colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Think of bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates plenty of shadows that define their muscles and highlight.

At dawn and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to make lots of shadows that are defining. This will add your pictures and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dawn and twilight, then compare the results to the exact same scene shot at noon. You may never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky shooting. This will definitely add plenty of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is poor... Get out there! That's the time you'll get the best shots.

Today, let's add a couple more landscape photography tips and techniques.

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the morning - you will need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of trying to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.

Subsequently, make use of the mirror lockup feature in case your camera has one. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a shutter release that is timed. It might seem like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change.

Pay attention to the foreground, as far as composition is concerned! Use it to attract the viewer's eye into the photo. Use leading lines diagonals and so forth.

Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, place the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set the horizon in the upper third.

They are rare while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure you have a particular reason to do that!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that attribute is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the mistake of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You'll need a star.
