Landscape Photography - Tips about Taking Better Photographs
You've located the perfect location along with the view in front of you is breathless, you shoot some pictures and then get them developed. What you've shot fails to live it up the view you remember, everything is a bit lifeless! Does this seem familiar? If it does then here are some basic tips that can transform the way you shoot pictures. Before long you will be framing them, printing them, hanging them, and showing them away to anyone that comes to your house.
Get up early The best light for shooting landscape photography is first thing and morning or simply before sundown. It gives a better, less harsh, quality of light that will provide you with good starting point for your photo, when the sun is lower in the sky. Photographers regularly call these times of the day as the 'magic hour'. From previous experience I prefer to shoot my photographs at dawn, there is something about being up early and making the additional effort that appears to focus me into shooting a better picture.

Rule of thirds This is one of those things that once shown it you'll never shoot a picture without considering it again. So what you need to do is envision that the viewfinder is split into three both horizontally and vertically (like a noughts and crosses board). The theory behind this, with landscape photography, is that you align the horizon with the either the top or bottom horizontal line. When you commence taking photographs many if us put the horizon in the centre of the photo and you'll be amazed merely be following the rule of thirds how your photographs will improve.
Get out there and explore. It may seem obvious but so a lot folks stick to exactly the same places. Go online and also look at some maps and try and see somewhere new to go. Or even better go and purchase a map and try and find some locations that will offer some good geography to photograph. Pack up your camera and go for a walk, sometimes you the perfect location is just round the next corner!

Find filters. Should you only can afford a limited variety of filters, they can after all by expensive bits of kit and they frequently get forgotten about and you never get round to using them. Then get yourself a polarizing filter and place in your camera bag and begin trying. You will be amazed in the difference it can make, the wonderful blues you'll get from the sky and also the reduction in glare is amazing. The colours will simply seem to be more intense both onscreen and in print.
Depth of field This involves using some of the setting on your camera that you might have been scared of before. I say this as this is the way I was before getting a few lesson, automatic mode was the setting for me. That's until I was show about things a few simple setting that everyone should experiment with. Admittedly you're going to need a tripod as the shutter speed will mean that the photo may blur if not, to use as this setting.
So what do I mean the way to place this into practice and by depth of files? Well normally when you take a landscape either the background or the foreground has to suffer in terms of being somewhat out of focus. For example you have fascinating valley in the space you wish to focus on, however there is also a point of interest in the foreground. You are capable to give both these components the sharpness they deserve by utilising the aperture setting; you can get the result of everything being sharp in the image, by using this. Try using f 22 and you can find this working really well for you.
You are going to be shocked at just how quick you begin to improve and your pictures begin to look professional. I will be publishing part 2 of this guide shortly which will record more tricks which will help you to begin bringing in money from your photographs. Before long you be doing your dream occupation of a professional photography; sports, portrait or possibly wedding photography.
