Landscape Photography Tips And Hints
Today we'll continue our review of landscape photography hints and techniques. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photos and you will start winning photo contests! It's practically a given!
We talked about light.
First we discussed the shade of light... You have to get up early in the morning and begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak. AND you also need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so past sundown.
At those times there is a phenomenon we'll call a 'fictitious' dawn and sunset that could create some absolutely stunning colors in your landscape and cityscape photographs.
Next we talked about the angle of the light... Think of bodybuilder photos. The light is coming from about 90 degrees to the discipline. This creates a lot of shadows that accent and define their muscles.
At twilight and dawn, the glancing light from the sun is at an ideal angle to make a great deal of defining shadows. This can add your pictures and lots of third dimensionality and make them come alive!
Attempt shooting the same scene at both morning and twilight, then compare the results to exactly the 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 great deal of visual interest to the scene - as well as a lot of color. Now the setting or rising sun has something to bounce off of! When the weather is awful... Get out there! That is the time you'll get the top shots.

Today, let's add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.
Make use of 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 demands shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of trying to get a competition winner by shooting handheld. It won't happen.
If your camera has one, subsequently, utilize the mirror lockup feature. Most of the better DSLR cameras do.
For the ultimate in photo sharpness - in addition to locking up the mirror, use a timed shutter release. It might seem like a little overkill, but these sharpness techniques can and do make a significant change.
Pay attention to the foreground as far as composition is concerned! Use it to attract the viewer's eye into the photo. Use leading lines diagonals and so on.
Another compositional component to think about is the horizon, make it level! What exactly is 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.
They're uncommon, while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call. Make sure you have a specific reason to do this!
Last but not least... Ensure your photo has a 'star'. What attracted you to the scene? Make sure you accentuate that attribute and drive the viewer's focus to it. Do not make the blunder of attempting to make the whole scene equally important. You need a star.
