Landscape Photography Hints

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

We discussed light yesterday.

First we discussed the colour of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn and you need to 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 will call a 'bogus' sunrise and sundown that could create some absolutely stunning colors 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 area. This creates a lot of shadows that define their muscles and accentuate.

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the outcomes to the exact same scene shot at midday. You'll never sleep in again!

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

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the predawn - you will require 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.

Then, utilize 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, use a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it might appear like a bit of overkill.

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

They're uncommon while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure you have a certain reason to do so!

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