Landscape Photography Tips And Hints

Now we will continue our review of landscape photography hints and techniques. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will begin winning photo contests! It's nearly a given!

We talked about light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'bogus' dawn and sundown that could create some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photographs. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the subject. This creates plenty of shadows that accentuate and define their muscles.

At daybreak and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to make plenty of darkness that are defining. This will add lots of third dimensionality to your photos and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the results to the same scene shot at midday. You will never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will definitely add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots of shade. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is lousy... Get out there! That's the time you will receive the best shots.

Now, let's add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.

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

If your camera has one, afterward, utilize the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a timed shutter release. It might seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big 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 on.

Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most important element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, put the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Place in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they're uncommon. Be sure to have a particular reason to do so!

Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure that attribute is accented by you and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the error of attempting to make the entire scene equally important. You'll need a star.
