Landscape Photography Ideas

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

We discussed light.

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

At those times there's a happening we will call a 'bogus' dawn and sundown that can produce some absolutely beautiful colours 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 area. This creates plenty of shadows that highlight and define their muscles.

At daybreak and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to generate lots of defining shadows. This can add a great deal of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

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

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

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

Make use of a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the morning and post sunset times - you will need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.

In case your camera has one, afterward, 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 timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major difference, although it might seem like a little 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 element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What is the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, put on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Place in the upper third.

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they're uncommon. Be sure to have a specific reason to do this!

Last but not least... Be sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make sure you emphasize that feature and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the mistake of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You'll need a star.
