Landscape Photography Hints

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

We talked about light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we'll call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that can create some absolutely beautiful colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

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

Try shooting the same scene at both dawn and dusk, then compare the outcomes to the exact same scene shot at noon. You may never sleep in again!

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

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

Make use of a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the daybreak and post sunset times - you'll require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates 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 occur.

If your camera has one, subsequently, make use of 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 shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it might seem like a little overkill.

Pay attention to the foreground as far as composition is concerned! Use it to draw the audience'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, set on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Place in the upper third.

They are uncommon, while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Make sure you have a special reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the error of attempting to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
