We talked about light yesterday.

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

At those times there's a happening we'll call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that may create some absolutely stunning colors 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 discipline. This creates plenty of shadows that define their muscles and accentuate.

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

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

Next we mentioned shooting when there are clouds in the sky. This will add a lot 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 current weather is poor... Get out there! That is the time you'll get the very best shots.

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

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

Then, utilize 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, utilize a shutter release that is timed. It might appear like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big change.

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, framing, diagonals and so forth.

Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What is the most important 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? Put in the upper third.

They're uncommon, while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure you are in possession of a particular 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 emphasize that characteristic and drive the viewer's attention to it. Don't make the blunder of attempting to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
