Landscape Photography Strategies

We'll continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques today. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will begin winning photo contests! It is practically a given!

We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a phenomenon we'll call a 'bogus' sunrise and sundown that could produce some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

At dawn and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the perfect angle to make a great deal of defining darkness. This will definitely add your pictures and a great deal of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

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

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

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

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak and post sunset times - you'll require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

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

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

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, framing, diagonals and so on.

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

They're uncommon, while there are times that putting 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 that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make sure you stress that feature and drive the viewer's attention to it. Don't make the mistake of attempting to make the whole scene equally significant. You need a star.
