Picture Taking Secrets And Techniques For Girdwood Alaska

Landscape Photography Guidelines

Today we will continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will begin winning photo competitions! It is nearly a given!

We talked about light.

First we discussed the colour of light... You have to get up early in the morning and start shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn. AND you also need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sunset.

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

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

At twilight and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is right at an ideal angle to make plenty of defining darkness. This will definitely add a great deal of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both twilight and dawn, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at noon. You may never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will add a lot 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 current weather is lousy... Get out there! That is the time you will receive the very best shots.

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

Use a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak - you'll need a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field demands shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.

Subsequently, make use of the mirror lockup feature if 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. It might appear like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a major change.

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

Another compositional element to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most important component 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 placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they are rare. Be sure you are in possession of a particular reason to do so!

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