Landscape Photography Hints
Today we'll continue our review of techniques and landscape photography tips. Add these suggestions to your landscape and cityscape photographs and you will start winning photo competitions! It is nearly a given!
Yesterday we talked about light.
First we discussed the color of light... You need to get up early in the morning and begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before daybreak. AND also you need to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sunset.
At those times there is a happening we will call a 'bogus' sunrise and sunset that can 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 subject. This creates a lot of shadows that define their muscles and accent.
At twilight and daybreak, the glancing light from the sun is at the perfect angle to produce lots of defining shadows. This will definitely add lots of third dimensionality to your photographs and make them come alive!
Try shooting the same scene at both twilight and morning, then compare the outcomes to exactly the same scene shot at midday. You will never sleep in again!
Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky shooting. This will definitely add plenty 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 weather is poor... Get out there! That's the time you will get the best shots.

Now, let's add a couple more landscape photography tips and techniques.
Make use of a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you'll require an extended exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field needs shooting at minimal apertures - which means long shutter speeds.) Don't even think of trying to get a contest winner by shooting handheld. It won't occur.
In case your camera has one, afterward, use the mirror lockup feature. 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. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big difference, although it might appear like a little overkill.
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 diagonals and so forth.
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 in the upper third.
They are uncommon while there are times that putting the horizon in the middle is the correct call. Be sure to have a certain reason to do that!
Last but not least... Make fully sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make certain that feature is accented by you and drive the viewer's focus to it. Don't make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You need a star.
