Landscape Photography Ideas

Now we will continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you'll start winning photo competitions! It's almost a given!

We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'false' sunrise and sunset that could produce some absolutely beautiful colors 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 a lot of shadows that accentuate and define their muscles.

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is right at an ideal angle to make a lot of defining darkness. This will add a great deal of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the outcomes to the same scene shot at noon. You'll never sleep in again!

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

Now, let us add a couple more landscape photography tips and techniques.

Utilize a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you'll require a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not occur.

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

For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it might appear like a little overkill.

As far as composition is concerned, pay attention to the foreground! Use it to attract on the audience's eye into the photo. Use leading lines, framing, diagonals and so forth.

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

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they are rare. Make sure you have a specific reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make certain you accentuate that feature and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You'll need a star.
