We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a happening we'll call a 'false' dawn and sundown that can create some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both twilight and morning, then compare the outcomes to 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 definitely add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots 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 get the very best shots.

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

Make use of a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the predawn and post sunset times - you'll need a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field demands shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

Then, use 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. It may seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big change.

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

Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What 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? Set in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they are rare. Be sure to are in possession of a specific reason to do that!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that characteristic is accented by you and drive the audience's attention to it. Don't make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You require a star.
