What DSLR Camera Properties Are Best For Digital Photography For Saxe Virginia

Landscape Photography Points

We will continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints now. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will begin winning photo contests! It is nearly a given!

We talked about light yesterday.

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 you also have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sunset.

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'false' sunrise and sundown that may produce some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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 a lot of shadows that define their muscles and highlight.

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both morning and dusk, then compare the results to the same scene shot at noon. You'll never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This can add a lot of visual interest to the scene - in addition to plenty of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That's the time you will receive the top shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the daybreak and post sunset times - you will need an extended 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 happen.

Subsequently, use 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 shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change, although it may seem like a bit of overkill.

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

Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What's 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? Set in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they are rare. Be sure to are in possession of a certain reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that feature is accented by you and drive the audience's attention to it. Do not make the error of trying to make the entire scene equally significant. You will need a star.

Landscape Photography Photo Tip - Get Better Sundown Photography With Silhouettes!

Today's landscape photography photo suggestion will continue our discussion of how to create beautiful sunset photography.

Formerly, we found that the pretty colors aren't enough. A winning sundown photo needs a star. Today let's add shapes to get better sunset photography.

In previous posts, we've mentioned that the star might be an interesting palm tree, a seagull flying by... basically anything! The magnificent colours are the backdrop to our star, not the focus of the photo.

But (as in our regular non sunset landscape photographs) the most effective star is a person! Folks like looking at folks! You're going to get the viewer more readily participated in a photo - any photo - where there are people being shown.

In a sunset photograph there's two ways to add a man. In shape showing no detail and generally revealing full detail.

Today's sunset photography photo hint will discuss adding a silhouetted man. Or actually anything - the principles are valid regardless of what your 'star' is. Done well, the result can be one of the most exquisite pictures you could ever create.

When adding a silhouette, the crucial component to keep in mind is that you're adding a shape, not a man (or bird or tree). Your contour will be pure black with no detail.

In sundown photography, getting the shape that is black that is pure with no detail is really quite simple. In our previous discussions, we have learned that if we take our meter readings from the sky - everything else in our sunset photo is going to go black. Ta-daaa!

Formerly, our concern was to bring detail into the dark spaces - now we just let them go dim.

So to put in a shape, the first step is to meter from the sky, not the person. If you meter from the individual, your camera will make a mighty effort at setting an exposure to show detail.

To put it differently, you need to take the camera off automatic - meter for the sky and then re-compose to put your 'star' in the right position in the photo.

Simple.

In including a silhouette, the 2nd concern we've got is in fact harder to get right.

Remember, you're adding a shape and everything but the sky is black with no detail. Including the ground. When you add your shape, it's to 'read' right.

By 'read' I mean that when someone looks at your photo, they must have the ability to immediately tell what it is. In case your subject is standing in front of some other thing, like a palm tree, stone or whatever - the (black with no detail) shapes will combine together and distort the image.

This idea is hard to place in words but easy to understand. I am certain you have observed photos where the silhouettes blended together and neither appears right. An individual who has a palm tree growing out of their head, a palm tree with a seagull's wing sticking out of the trunk and so on...

Be sure that there's nothing intersecting with your silhouetted shape.

This consists of the ground... Often I see silhouettes where the top half of the model is in silhouette but the bottom half is lost in the ground. You may have to shoot up at your star from a vantage point that is marginally lower to avert this kind of blending.

The third factor to take into account is the shape itself! Not only do you have to watch out for your shape not reading right because it mixes with others, it can combine with itself also! Arms crossing in front of the body or hanging (with no gaps) along the sides, legs together and so on.

The pose is essential, to get an effective silhouette! Even more so than in a normal photo of the person. The fact that she is a pretty girl does not matter in this event. In a shape, no one is definitely going to be able to tell what she looks like.

Take photo examples out of magazines and color them with a black magic marker. Would that pose 'read' and be powerful if that was all you could see of the person?

The shape could radically change and look weird in silhouette. It may look like a tiara in the wedding photos, but in silhouette, it resembles demon's horns sticking from her head.

Study various poses for their contours and find several you can use if you are creating silhouettes. So that you'll always have them at hand when the situation arises, add them to your laptop.

Shapes are not only powerful in sundown photography, but at weddings. Pose the couple in silhouette in front of a stained glass window for example. Or at the door of the church from outside silhouetting them together with the light.

Practice today's landscape photography photo suggestion by including silhouettes on what steps to take to to get better sunset photography. There are many times when a silhouette is just the thing you have to separate you from the crowd, its worth learning the best way to do them nicely. A
