Landscape Photography Hints

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

We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we'll call a 'false' dawn and sundown that may produce some absolutely beautiful colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Think of bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the area. This creates plenty of shadows that emphasize and define their muscles.

At daybreak and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to create a lot of defining shadows. This will definitely add your photos and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the outcomes to the same scene shot at noon. You will 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 - in addition to a lot of color. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is awful... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the best shots.

Now, let's 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 needs shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of attempting to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It will not happen.

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, utilize a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big change, although it might seem like a little overkill.

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

Another compositional component to consider 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 on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Put the horizon in the upper third.

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call, they are uncommon. Be sure to are in possession of a particular reason to do this!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Be sure you stress that attribute and drive the viewer's attention to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally important. You need a star.
