Landscape Photography Suggestions

We'll continue our review of techniques and landscape photography hints today. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will start winning photo contests! It's almost a given!

Yesterday we talked about light.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we will call a 'bogus' dawn and sundown that can produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

At dawn and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to create lots of defining darkness. This can add a great deal of third dimensionality to your photos and make them come alive!

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

Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This can add a great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as lots of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the top shots.

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

Use a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the morning and post sunset times - you will need a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

Afterward, use the mirror lockup feature if your camera has one. 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. It may seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change.

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

Another compositional element 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, put on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Place the horizon in the upper third.

They are rare while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure you are in possession of a particular reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure that feature is accented by you and drive the audience's attention to it. Don't make the mistake of attempting to make the entire scene equally significant. You'll need a star.

Composition - The Heart of the Photo

Composition is the soul of the photo. Composition results in the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration starts when you disconnect with the interior struggles of everyday life and free the spirit to have the universe around you. Truly being in the moment and experiencing nature links you with all around you.

It might seem like meditation, but comprehension of your surroundings without interference of thoughts that are external clears the mind and sharpening your senses. Images seem where you didn't see them. The components start to art and align appears.

Joseph Cornell in his novel 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into a place that you would like to photograph. Rather than shooting and setting up the camera. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and feel the instant. Really gently become aware of nature. The Native Americans called this 'silent hunting'. You will be spoken to by nature, but you should be quiet. Nature talks softly. In case you are patient, nature will show herself to you. And incredible pictures will appear.

There are numerous times that I've entered the woods with camera in hand and not found anything that I needed to photograph. It may be that I wasn't ready or nature did not wish to show herself. Perhaps she didn't feel photogenic. Scenes appear as if by magic, other days. So don't be disappointed if you can not find anything to shoot on any specified day. Utilize that time to scout the area for future chances and revel in the fact that you've got an opportunity to be outdoors.

Choose this as an opportunity to plan for future shots. At these times think, what if the light was coming from a different way. Coming back in the early morning or late afternoon may produce a better image. Seasons alter the landscape. Maybe shooting in the fall, together with the foliage in brilliant colours, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you desire.

Don't rush yourself when seeking that image. Time with nature is a pleasure all by its self. The sheer happiness of being one with the outside is worth the encounter, should you not find anything to shoot.

Composition - Ten Suggestions And Techniques for Astonishing Results

Composition does not come naturally to many photographers. The technical aspects might be learned but some say that composition cannot. Although I actually don't believe this to be totally accurate, photography is an art form and does need some natural ability.

So what can I do, my composition stinks? Composition is subjective so there will always be someone out there who enjoys regardless of how poor you may believe it's you work. Most non-photographers aren't that discerning but to capture photos composition that is truly amazing is essential. A well composed photograph only functions, it's fairly clear-cut but it is more a feeling than conforming to a set of rules.

Below are some composition tips to remember next time you go out to shoot. Keep them at hand and see if they work for you.

1. A painter picks what to include in a painting, a photographer must choose what to exclude. Mess compositions by particular framing removing unneeded components. Use your legs, walk about searching for alternative compositions and utilize the cameras zoom to command what exclude and more importantly, you wish to contain.

2. The 'rule of thirds' is a well known compositional practice but doesn't necessarily need to be strictly adhered to. The rule orders the primary elements that make up the image should fall on or near flat thirds or imaginary vertical.

3. Check your horizon. For me the horizon should only ever be absolutely horizontal. Make use of the top of the window in the view finder as a reference. I often point the camera downward to align the horizon before re-composing.

4. Do not leave empty spaces that are large. Leaving large holes in the composition for example uninteresting sweeps of water or dark or very bright elements ought to be avoided. By shortening the tripod legs to compress large openings in the mid to close foreground change standpoint. Conversely components shouldn't be cluttered, raise the height of the camera to grow the space between components.

5. Take a walk before settling on two or three compositions to shoot. Take the time to refine them instead of shooting everything and anything.

6. Make the foreground and background intriguing.

7. Use leading lines such as movement or stone formations in water to lead the eye into the frame.

8. Check the edges of the frame for absolutely any distracting elements (half a tree, breaks in clouds etc.), and recompose if needed. Make sure you can concentrate the audience's attention to the topic and try not to distract them away from it unnecessarily. Ask yourself, 'what is this image about?'

9. Try and keep compositions balanced to some amount where possible. A protruding headland or building can upset the equilibrium, eliminate it and search for an alternative composition.

10. Practice, critically reviewing your own work and looking at just how other photographers compose their pictures. Take a look at this landscape photographer for a start.

Most importantly, get out there and enjoy, exploration of composition is a constant learning curve.
