Landscape Photography Tips

We'll continue our review of landscape photography tips and techniques now. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you'll start winning photo competitions! It is practically a given!

Yesterday we discussed light.

First we discussed the shade of light... You need to get up early in the morning and begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak. AND 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' dawn and sundown that could 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 area. This creates plenty of shadows that highlight and define their muscles.

At daybreak and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to create plenty of shadows that are defining. This will add your pictures and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at midday. You'll never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky shooting. This will add a lot of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of color. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is poor... Get out there! That is the time you'll get the top shots.

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

Utilize a tripod! When shooting landscapes, particularly in the daybreak and post sunset times - you will require an extended 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 will not occur.

Afterward, make use of the mirror lockup feature if your camera has one. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.

For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, utilize a shutter release that is timed. It might seem like a bit of overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference.

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

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

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the right call, they're rare. Be sure you have a particular reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Be sure that characteristic is accented by you and drive the audience's attention to it. Don't make the mistake of trying to make the whole scene equally significant. You will need a star.
