Landscape Photography Techniques

We will continue our review of landscape photography hints and techniques today. Add these ideas to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will start winning photo competitions! It is nearly a given!

We talked about light.

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

At those times there is a happening we'll call a 'false' sunrise and sunset that could produce some absolutely beautiful colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.

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

At dusk and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to produce a lot of defining shadows. This will add your photos and a lot of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Try shooting the same scene at both twilight and morning, then compare the outcomes to the exact same scene shot at midday. You may 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 - in addition to plenty of colour. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is awful... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will get the top shots.

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

Use a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak - you'll need an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field necessitates shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Do not even think of attempting to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It will not occur.

Subsequently, utilize the mirror lockup feature if 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 shutter release that is timed. These sharpness techniques can and do make a major change, although it might seem like a bit of overkill.

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

Another compositional component to consider is the horizon, make it level! What is 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? Place in the upper third.

While there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call, they're uncommon. Be sure you are in possession of a specific reason to do that!

Last but not least... Ensure that your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure you accentuate that feature and drive the viewer's focus to it. Do not make the mistake of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You require a star.
