Landscape Photography Hints

We'll continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques now. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you'll start winning photo contests! It's almost a given!

We talked about light.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we'll call a 'bogus' 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 photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates plenty of shadows that accent and define their muscles.

At dusk and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to make plenty of defining darkness. This will definitely add your photographs and a great deal of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both twilight and morning, then compare the results to exactly the same scene shot at midday. You'll 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 - as well as lots of shade. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is lousy... Get out there! That is the time you will get the top shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the daybreak - you'll require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting 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, use a shutter release that is timed. It may seem like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant difference.

Pay attention to the foreground as far as composition is concerned! Use it to draw on the viewer'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's the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, put the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they're uncommon. Be sure to have a certain reason to do so!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Be sure you accentuate that feature and drive the audience's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally significant. You require a star.
