Landscape Photography Tips And Hints
Now we will continue our review of techniques and landscape photography tips. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you'll start winning photo competitions! It's nearly a given!
Yesterday we discussed 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 have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sunset.
At those times there is a happening we will call a 'false' sunrise and sundown that can produce some absolutely stunning colours in your landscape and cityscape photos.
Next we talked about the angle of the light... Consider bodybuilder pictures. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the area. This creates plenty of shadows that define their muscles and highlight.
At dusk and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the best angle to create a great deal of defining shadows. This will add your photos and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!
Try shooting the same scene at both dawn and twilight, then compare the results to the exact same scene shot at noon. You'll never sleep in again!
Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will definitely add a lot 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 bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will get the top shots.

Now, let us add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.
Make use of a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak and post sunset times - you'll require a long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs 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 occur.
Afterward, use 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, make use of a timed shutter release. It may seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big change.
As far as composition is concerned, pay attention to the foreground! Use it to attract the audience's eye into the photo. Use leading lines, framing, diagonals and so on.
Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What's the most crucial element in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, put the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Set the horizon in the upper third.
They are rare, while there are times that setting the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure you are in possession of 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 you stress that characteristic and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the mistake of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You require a star.
