Landscape Photography Tips
Now we will continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will start winning photo contests! It's nearly a given!
Yesterday we talked about light.
First we discussed the color of light... Start shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn and you need to get up early in the morning. AND you also have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sundown.
At those times there's a phenomenon we'll call a 'false' sunrise and sundown that could produce some absolutely beautiful colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.
Next we talked about the angle of the light... Think of bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the area. This creates lots of shadows that define their muscles and accentuate.
At dusk and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to generate lots of shadows that are defining. 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 dusk, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at noon. You'll never sleep in again!
Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This will definitely add a lot of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of color. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is lousy... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the best shots.

Today, let's add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.
Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the morning and post sunset times - you'll need a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.
If your camera has one, then, utilize the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.
For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, make use of a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, 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 exactly is the most crucial 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? Put the horizon in the upper third.
They are uncommon while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. 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 you emphasize that attribute and drive the audience's attention to it. Do not make the error of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You'll need a star.
