Landscape Photography Suggestions

We will continue our review of landscape photography hints and techniques now. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photos and you'll start winning photo contests! It is nearly a given!

We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a happening we will call a 'bogus' dawn and sundown that may produce some absolutely beautiful colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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

At dawn and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is right at the perfect angle to create a lot of darkness that are defining. This will definitely add your photos and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the results to exactly the same scene shot at midday. You'll never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky shooting. This can add plenty of visual interest to the scene - in addition to plenty of color. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is lousy... Get out there! That is certainly the time you'll get the best shots.

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

Use a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the morning - you'll need a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not happen.

Then, use 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, use a shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a significant difference, 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, framing, diagonals and so forth.

Another compositional element to think about is the horizon, make it level! What is the most crucial element 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? Set the horizon in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they are uncommon. Be sure you have a particular reason to do that!

Last but not least... Be sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure you emphasize that characteristic and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You require a star.
