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

We talked about light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'bogus' sunrise and sundown that may produce some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to produce a great deal of defining shadows. This can add lots of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the results to the exact same scene shot at midday. You may 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 - in addition to lots of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is poor... Get out there! That is certainly the time you'll get the top shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the predawn and post sunset times - you'll need a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.

Then, make use of the mirror lockup feature if 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. It may seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a major change.

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

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

They're rare, while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to have a particular reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Be sure you emphasize that attribute and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You require a star.
