We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a happening we'll call a 'fictitious' sunrise and sunset that may produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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 a lot of shadows that define their muscles and accentuate.

At twilight and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is right at an ideal angle to make lots of defining shadows. This can add lots of third dimensionality to your photos and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the results to the same scene shot at midday. You may never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This can add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of shade. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will get the very best shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the morning - you'll require a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of trying to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.

Afterward, make use of the mirror lockup feature if 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 significant difference, although it might seem like a bit of 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 component to consider is the horizon, make it level! What's 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 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 special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be 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 entire scene equally important. You'll need a star.
