Landscape Photography Strategies

Now we will continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you'll begin winning photo contests! It's practically a given!

We talked about light yesterday.

First we discussed the color of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak and you have to get up early in the morning. AND you need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sunset.

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'false' dawn and sundown that can create 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 discipline. This creates plenty of shadows that emphasize 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 can add a great deal of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the results to the exact same scene shot at noon. You will never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This can add lots of visual interest to the scene - as well as plenty of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the 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 hints and techniques.

Use a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the predawn - you will require an extended 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 won't occur.

Afterward, utilize 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, make use of a timed shutter release. It might seem like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference.

As far as composition is concerned, pay attention to the foreground! Use it to draw 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 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 the horizon in the upper third.

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they are rare. Be sure to have a special reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that attribute is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the mistake of trying to make the entire scene equally significant. You need a star.
