Yesterday we discussed light.

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

At those times there's a phenomenon we will call a 'false' dawn and sunset that could produce some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dawn and dusk, then compare the results 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 a lot 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 current weather is lousy... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will get the very best shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you'll need a very 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 won't happen.

Subsequently, 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, utilize 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 audience's eye into the photo. Use leading lines diagonals and so on.

Another compositional element to consider 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, place the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Put the horizon in the upper third.

They're rare while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Make sure you are in possession of a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Be sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain you stress that characteristic and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the mistake of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You need a star.
