We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a phenomenon we'll call a 'fictitious' sunrise and sundown that could create some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder pictures. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates lots of shadows that define their muscles and accent.

At dusk and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the best angle to create a great deal of shadows that are defining. This can add a lot of third dimensionality to your photos and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dawn and dusk, then compare the outcomes 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 lots of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is poor... Get out there! That is the time you will receive the very best shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak and post sunset times - you will need a long 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 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, utilize a timed shutter release. It might appear like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change.

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 exactly is the most crucial component in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, set the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set the horizon in the upper third.

They're rare while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Make sure you have a specific reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain that characteristic is accented by you and drive the viewer's focus to it. Do not make the blunder of trying to make the entire scene equally important. You will need a star.
