Yesterday we discussed light.

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

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

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the area. This creates a lot of shadows that accent and define their muscles.

At daybreak and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to make plenty of defining darkness. This will add a lot of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the results to the same scene shot at noon. You will never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This can add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of colour. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you'll get the very best shots.

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

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

In case your camera has one, subsequently, make use of 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 shutter release that is timed. It might appear like a bit of 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 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 important element 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? Place the horizon in the upper third.

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they're rare. Make sure you have a special reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make sure that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain you stress that feature and drive the audience's attention to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the entire scene equally significant. You will need a star.
