Landscape Photography Helpful hints
Today we'll continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you'll start winning photo competitions! It's practically a given!
We talked about light yesterday.
First we discussed the colour of light... You must get up early in the morning and begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak. AND you also need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sundown.
At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'bogus' dawn and sundown that could create some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.
Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photographs. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the area. This creates a lot of shadows that define their muscles and emphasize.
At twilight and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is right at the perfect angle to generate a lot of darkness that are defining. This can add lots of third dimensionality to your photos and make them come alive!
Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the results to the same scene shot at midday. You will never sleep in again!
Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This can add a lot of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of colour. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is poor... Get out there! That is the time you will receive the top shots.

Now, let us 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 a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field demands shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not occur.
Then, make use of the mirror lockup feature in case your camera has one. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.
For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big change, although it might seem like a bit of overkill.
Pay attention to the foreground as far as composition is concerned! Use it to draw the viewer's eye into the photo. Use leading lines, framing, diagonals and so forth.
Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most crucial component in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, put on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set the horizon in the upper third.
While there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call, they're rare. Be sure to have a certain reason to do that!
Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure you stress that feature and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally important. You require a star.
