You shoot photographs, if it does then here are some basic suggestions which will transform the way. Before long you'll be hanging them, framing them, printing them, and showing them away to anyone that comes to your home.
Get up early The best light for taking landscape photography is first thing and morning or simply before sunset. When the sun is lower in the sky it gives a better, less harsh, quality of light that can provide you with great starting point for your photo. Photographers often call these times of the day as the 'magic hour'. From previous experience I would rather shoot my photos at dawn, there is something about being up early and making the extra effort that appears to focus me into shooting a better picture.

Rule of thirds This is one of those things that once revealed it you will never shoot a picture without contemplating it again. So what you must do is imagine that the viewfinder is divide into three both horizontally and vertically (like a noughts and crosses board). The theory behind this, with landscape photography, is that you align the horizon with the either the top or bottom flat line. When you begin taking photographs many if us place the horizon in the centre of the photo and you'll be amazed merely be following the rule of thirds how your photographs will improve.
Get out there and explore. It might sound obvious but so many people stick to exactly the same places. Go online and also look at some maps and try and spot someplace new to go. Or even better go and buy a map and try and locate some places that will offer some great terrain to photograph. Pack up your camera and go for a walk, sometimes you the next corner is just round!

Detect filters. They can after all by expensive bits of kit and they often get forgotten about and you never get round to using them, if you only can afford a limited number of filters. Then get yourself a polarizing filter and place in your camera bag and start trying. You may be astounded at the difference it can make, the wonderful blues you will receive from the sky as well as the reduction in glare is amazing. The colours will just appear to be more intense both onscreen and in print.
Depth of field This involves using some of the setting in your camera that you may have been afraid of before. I say this as this is how I was before getting a few lesson, automatic mode was the setting for me. That is until I was show about things a few straightforward setting that everybody should experiment with. True you are going to need a tripod as the shutter speed will mean that the photo may blur if not, to use as this setting.
So what do I mean by depth of files and the way to place this into practice? Well generally when you take a landscape either the background or the foreground has to suffer in terms of being slightly out of focus. For example you've got interesting valley in the space you want to focus on, however there is also a point of interest in the foreground. You're capable to give both these elements the sharpness they deserve by utilising the aperture setting; by using this you'll be able to get the result of everything being sharp in the image. Attempt using f 22 and you can locate this working really well for you.
You may be shocked at just how fast you start to improve and your photographs begin to look professional. I'll be publishing part 2 of this guide shortly that will record more suggestions that will help you to start earning money from your pictures. Before long you be doing your dream occupation of a professional photography; maybe wedding photography, portrait or sports.
