We talked about light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a phenomenon we'll call a 'fictitious' dawn and sunset that can create some absolutely beautiful colors 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 subject. This creates lots of shadows that define their muscles and accentuate.

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

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

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

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

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

Subsequently, 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, make use of a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major difference, although it might appear like a little overkill.

Pay attention to the foreground as far as composition is concerned! Use it to attract on the audience's eye into the photo. Use leading lines diagonals and so on.

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

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they're uncommon. Be sure you have a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain that attribute is accented by you and drive the viewer's attention to it. Don't make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
