EOS Cameras For Landscape Digital Photography For Tabb Virginia

To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Equipment Should Contain Neutral Density Filters!

Today's photo tip concerns the neutral density filter. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera gear which should be at all times in your bag! It's another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must 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 can shoot it so that it looks like a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!

By the way, did you know that Niagara Falls really stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice that was obstructing the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!

Anyway, back to our point...

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

Another great reason to set your camera on guide! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.

Imagine if we want an extremely slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant day? As you understand, only a particular amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure - should you let in too much, it'll ruin the picture.

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

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

The simple fix is to obstruct some of that light, since our difficulty is the fact that too much light is entering the lens.

Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.

The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to block a certain amount of light. That's all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is just less of it.

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

Neutral density filters come in several strengths. It's possible for you to block one stop of light, three, five, and so on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may put a five stop along with a three stop neutral density filter 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 hint post, I'll go into even more cool things that you can certainly do to enhance your landscape photography with these vital camera equipment accessories.

Landscape Photography Hints

Today we'll continue our review of techniques and landscape photography tips. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will start winning photo competitions! It is nearly a given!

Yesterday we talked about light.

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

At those times there is a happening we will call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that can create some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photos.

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

At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to produce lots of defining shadows. This will definitely add lots of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both twilight and morning, then compare the outcomes to exactly 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 plenty of visual interest to the scene - as well as plenty of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is poor... Get out there! That's the time you will get the best shots.

Now, let's add a couple more landscape photography tips and techniques.

Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you'll require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs 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 occur.

In case your camera has one, afterward, use the mirror lockup feature. 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. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it might appear like a little overkill.

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

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

They are uncommon while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure to have a certain reason to do that!

Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make certain that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You need a star.
