Landscape Photography Hints
We'll continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints now. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you'll begin winning photo contests! It's nearly a given!
We talked about light yesterday.
First we discussed the colour of light... You must get up early in the morning and begin 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'll call a 'false' dawn and sunset that may produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.
Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates plenty of shadows that define their muscles and highlight.
At dawn and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is right at an ideal angle to generate a lot of shadows that are defining. This will add your photos and a lot of third dimensionality and make them come alive!
Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and dawn, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at noon. You will never sleep in again!
Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This will add plenty of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots of shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is poor... Get out there! That's the time you will receive the very best shots.

Today, let us add a couple more landscape photography tips and techniques.
Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the morning and post sunset times - you will 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 trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It will not happen.
Afterward, make use of the mirror lockup feature in case your camera has one. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.
For the best in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, use a timed shutter release. It might appear like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a major change.
Pay attention to the foreground, as far as composition is concerned! Use it to attract on 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's 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.
They are rare while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to have a certain reason to do this!
Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain that attribute is accented by you and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the error of trying to make the entire scene equally significant. You'll need a star.
