Landscape Photography - Tips on Taking Better Photographs
You've found the perfect place and the view in front of you is breathless, you take some photos and after that get them developed. What you have taken fails to live up it the view you remember, everything is a bit lifeless! Does this seem familiar? If it does then here are a few basic tips which will transform how you take pictures. Before long you'll be printing them, framing them, hanging them, and showing them off to anyone that comes to your house.
Get up early The best light for shooting landscape photography is first thing and morning or just before sundown. When the sun is lower in the sky it gives a better, less unpleasant, quality of light which will give you great starting point for your photo. Photographers often call these times of the day as the 'magic hour'. From previous experience I would rather take my pictures at sunrise, there is some thing about being up early and making the extra effort that seems to focus me into shooting picture that is better.

Rule of thirds This is only 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 start shooting photos many if us put the horizon in the middle of the photo and you may be amazed simply be following the rule of thirds how your photographs will enhance.
Get out there and explore. It may seem obvious but so a lot people stick to the same places. Go on the internet and also look at some maps and try and spot somewhere new to go. Or even better go and purchase a map and try and locate some places that may offer some great landscape to photograph. Pack up your camera and go for a walk, occasionally you the perfect location is just round the next corner!

Discover filters. If you just can afford a limited number of filters, they can after all by expensive bits of kit and they often 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'll be amazed in the difference it can make, the wonderful blues you will get from the sky along with the decrease in glare is amazing. The colours will simply look more intense both onscreen and in print.
Depth of field This includes using some of the setting on your own camera that you might have been fearful of before. I say this as this is the way I was before getting a number of 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 are 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 by depth of files and how exactly to place this into practice? Well usually when you take a landscape either the background or the foreground has to suffer in terms of being slightly out of focus. For example you have fascinating valley in the distance you wish to focus on, however there is also a point of interest in the foreground. You are capable to give both these elements by utilising the aperture setting the sharpness they deserve; by using this you can achieve the end result of everything being sharp in the image. Attempt using f 22 and you might locate you this working.
You may be shocked at just how fast you start to improve and your pictures start to look professional. I am going to be printing part 2 of this guide shortly that will list more tricks that will help you to start earning cash from your photographs. Before long you be doing your fantasy job of a professional photography; possibly wedding photography, portrait or sports.
