Yesterday we discussed light.

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

At those times there is a happening we will call a 'fictitious' sunrise and sundown that could create some absolutely stunning colours 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 discipline. This creates a lot of shadows that accentuate and define their muscles.

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

Try shooting the same scene at both morning and dusk, then compare the results to the exact 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 plenty of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots of shade. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the top shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the predawn - you'll require a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of trying to get a contest 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 best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, use a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major change, although it might seem like a little 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 forth.

Another compositional element 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 the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Place the horizon in the upper third.

They're rare while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure to are in possession of a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure that characteristic is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the error of trying to make the entire scene equally important. You'll need a star.
