Superb Advice For Extraordinary Photography For Good Hart Michigan

To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Gear Should Include Neutral Density Filters!

Today's photo hint concerns the neutral density filter. This is another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times, to get better landscape photography! It is another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.

I'm certain you've seen landscape photography of a waterfall.

It's possible for you to shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a massive string of cotton candy! And everything in between!

Incidentally, did you know that Niagara Falls actually stopped flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Picture a before and after shot of THAT!

Anyway, back to our point...

We know that to get the sharp image, we need a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one.

Another great reason to set your camera on guide! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.

What if we want an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant day? Only a particular amount of light can be let in for a good exposure as you understand - it is going to destroy the photo, if you let in too much.

So we first start closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? Imagine if we are at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.

Our next option would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is nice, it's going to give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are constraints.

The simple fix is to block a few of that light since our difficulty is that too much light is entering the lens.

Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.

The neutral density filter is a filter that is made to obstruct a a predetermined amount of light. That is all! It does not change the light in any manner - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's just less of it.

Voilla! You are now able to shoot at that silky, waterfall that is cotton candy - on a brilliant sunny day!

Neutral density filters come in a variety of strengths. It's possible for you to block one stop of light, three, five, and so forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You could place a three stop neutral density filter and a five stop together for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)

Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo tip post, I'll go into even more cool things you certainly can do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are vital.

Landscape Photography Recommendations

We will continue our review of techniques and landscape photography tips now. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will start winning photo competitions! It is nearly a given!

Yesterday we talked about light.

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

At those times there is a happening we will call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that can create some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the subject. This creates a lot of shadows that accentuate and define their muscles.

At dusk and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at an ideal angle to create a lot of defining shadows. This can add lots of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, 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 can add plenty of visual interest to the scene - in addition to lots of colour. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is bad... Get out there! That's the time you will receive the best shots.

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

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

If your camera has one, afterward, make use of the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a shutter release that is timed. It might appear like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big change.

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

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

They're uncommon, while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Make sure you are in possession of a certain reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You will need a star.
