Fabulous Picture Taking Tips For Snider Montana

Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Gear to Get Better Landscape Photography!

The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera equipment which should be in your bag at all times! It's another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.

I'm certain you've seen landscape photography of a waterfall.

You can shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!

Incidentally, do you realize that Niagara Falls really stopped flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice that was blocking the Niagara River? Imagine a before and after shot of THAT!

Anyway, back to our point...

We know that to get the image that is sharp, we to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one and want a fast shutter speed.

Another great reason to place your camera on manual! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They are going to look like everyone else's.

Imagine if we want an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant daytime? Just a certain amount of light can be let in for a great exposure, as you know - if you let in too much, it's going to ruin the picture.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? What if we are at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.

Our next choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is fine, it will give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limitations.

The simple fix is to block some of that light since our problem is that too much light is entering the lens.

Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.

The neutral density filter is a filter that's made to obstruct a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It does not change the light in any way - it's neutral. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there's just less of it.

Voilla! You're now able to shoot cotton candy waterfall, that glossy - on a bright sunny day!

Neutral density filters come in several strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may place a three stop neutral density filter and also a five stop together for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)

Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo suggestion post, I'll go into even more cool things that you certainly can do to enhance your landscape photography with these essential camera equipment accessories.

Landscape Photography Hints

We will continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques now. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will start winning photo contests! It is almost a given!

We discussed light yesterday.

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

At those times there is a phenomenon we'll call a 'false' sunrise and sunset that can produce some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.

Next we talked about the angle of the light... Think of bodybuilder photographs. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates a lot of shadows that accent and define their muscles.

At dawn and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to make lots of shadows that are defining. This will add lots of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

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

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

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

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the predawn - you'll require a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of trying to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.

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

For the ultimate 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 significant difference, although it might seem like a bit of overkill.

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

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

While there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call, they are uncommon. Be sure you have a specific reason to do that!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain you stress that attribute and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the entire scene equally significant. You need a star.
