Landscape Photography Making Use Of Your Digital SLR Camera
There are many variables that go towards landscape photography that is excellent. Here are a few points to think about.
To be able to pack us much of a scene as possible into the picture, lens Using an ultra wide angle lens is typical. Nevertheless, it is worth experimenting with a telephoto lens too.
Composition Pay attention to the rule of thirds, i.e. break the image down into a nine square grid, then place any lines in the picture, or focal points, along the lines of the grid.
Focal/interest points Putting trees a person, or a building in the foreground add an image and a feeling of scale and may give a focal point.
Light Some landscape photographers never shoot during the daytime, just at daybreak and dusk when life can be struck by the light into a landscape. It's not just the reds and pinks of sunrises and sunsets that can create drama, but the golden light of a low sun can warm a scene and create surprising textures and patterns thanks to its low angle. Similarly, storms, mist, thunderous clouds and dark heavens could be much more exciting to work with than a bright day or a lovely sunset.

Depth of field When using an SLR, or a digital SLR, combine a slow shutter speed with a tiny aperture to ensure that your photograph has sharp focus up to the very edges. For this you'll need to make sure your camera is steady as blur can be created by any handshake. The clear solution is a tripod or if you don't have one try to find something on which to rest the camera.
Exposure Because the sky is normally very brilliant and the ground not so, this presents exposure dilemmas to all cameras. Then using a graduated filter will help even out the brightness in case you can.
Place Walk round the location to find the best place from which to take a shot. Time spent preparing is never time wasted, specially when you locate a more fascinating point of view to shoot from. Wander around, get down low or scale a tree to realize that fascinating vantage point.

Atmosphere Shooting in black and white can create some dramatic landscape images. You may just change cameras to the one loaded with black and white film, if shooting film and also you have two cameras. Instead, with a digital SLR camera, it's simple convert it to monochrome in Photoshop later.
Sky In most landscape shots, either the foreground or the sky will reign. Place it in the upper third in the event the sky isn't particularly dramatic. Conversely, in the event the sky is full of cloud structures and fascinating colours, put the horizon in the bottom third.
Motion Few landscapes are as truly still as we might envision. Birds flying through the sky, clouds drifting, water running and waves in the sea are all instances of potential motion in landscape shots. Incorporating movement can add drama and focal points to a photograph, although it'll mean that you would most likely need to apply a longer shutter speed (up to a few seconds). Because this will definitely mean greater exposure, you should need to make use of an appropriate filter or a smaller aperture.
