Landscape Photography Helpful hints

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

Yesterday we talked about light.

First we discussed the shade of light... You have to get up early in the morning and start shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn. AND also you need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sunset.

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'fictitious' dawn and sunset that could produce some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the subject. This creates a lot of shadows that highlight and define their muscles.

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

Try shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the results to the exact 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 plenty of visual interest to the scene - in addition to lots of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is lousy... Get out there! That's the time you'll get the best shots.

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

Use 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 attempting to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

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

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, make use of a shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major change, although it may seem like a little overkill.

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

Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What's the most crucial component 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? Put in the upper third.

They are uncommon, while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to are in possession of a specific reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure that attribute is accented by you and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
