Yesterday we discussed light.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'fictitious' dawn and sundown that could create some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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 define their muscles and accentuate.

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

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dawn and twilight, then compare the results to the exact 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 plenty of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is awful... Get out there! That is the time you will get the best shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the predawn - you will need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field demands shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not happen.

In case your camera has one, subsequently, utilize the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big change, although it might appear like a bit of 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 forth.

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

They're uncommon while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure to are in possession of a special reason to do so!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make sure that feature is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Do not make the blunder of trying to make the entire scene equally significant. You need a star.
