We talked about light yesterday.

First we discussed the color of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak 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 sundown that could produce 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 lots of shadows that define their muscles and emphasize.

At daybreak and dusk, the glancing light from the sun is right at an ideal angle to produce lots of shadows that are defining. This will definitely add a great deal of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both twilight and dawn, then compare the results to the same scene shot at midday. You will 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 shade. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will receive the best shots.

Now, let us add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.

Use a tripod! When shooting landscapes, especially in the morning and post sunset times - 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 happen.

Subsequently, use 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, make use of a timed shutter release. It may seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change.

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, framing, diagonals and so on.

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 the horizon in the upper third.

While there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the right call, they are uncommon. Make sure you have a specific reason to do this!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make certain you stress that attribute and drive the audience's focus to it. Don't make the mistake of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You need a star.
