We discussed light yesterday.

First we discussed the color 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 phenomenon we will call a 'false' dawn and sundown that can create some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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 define their muscles and highlight.

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

Try shooting the same scene at both dawn and dusk, then compare the outcomes to the same scene shot at midday. You may never sleep in again!

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

Today, 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 require 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 trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

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, use a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major change, although it might appear like a bit of overkill.

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 forth.

Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, set on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Put in the upper third.

They're rare while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to have a particular reason to do this!

Last but not least... Be sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure you stress that attribute and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the error of attempting to make the entire scene equally important. You require a star.
