What DSLR Camera Characteristics Are Fantastic For Photography For Jay Indiana

Landscape Photography Tips

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

Yesterday we discussed light.

First we discussed the colour of light... Begin shooting in the 20 or so minutes before dawn and you need to get up early in the morning. AND also you have to keep shooting for about 20 minutes or so previous sunset.

At those times there's a happening we will call a 'fictitious' sunrise and sunset that may 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 subject. This creates plenty of shadows that accentuate and define their muscles.

At daybreak and twilight, the glancing light from the sun is right at the right angle to produce plenty of defining darkness. This will definitely add a lot of third dimensionality to your pictures and make them come alive!

Attempt shooting the same scene at both dusk and morning, then compare the outcomes to the exact same scene shot at noon. You will never sleep in again!

Next we mentioned when there are clouds in the sky, shooting. This will add lots of visual interest to the scene - in addition to a lot of colour. Now the rising or setting sun has something to bounce off of! When the current weather is bad... Get out there! That is certainly the time you will get the very best shots.

Today, let's add a couple more landscape photography hints and techniques.

Use a tripod! Post sunset times and when shooting landscapes, especially in the morning - you will require a very long exposure! (Creating an acceptable depth of field requires 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 happen.

Then, 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, utilize a timed shutter release. These sharpness techniques can and do make a big change, although it might appear like a little overkill.

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 forth.

Another compositional element to consider is the horizon, make it level! What is the most crucial component in your landscape or cityscape photo? Is it the sky? If so, set the horizon on the lower third of the shot. Is it the ground? Put in the upper third.

They are rare, while there are times that placing the horizon in the middle is the right call. Be sure to have a special reason to do that!

Last but not least... Make sure your photo has a 'star'. What brought you to the scene? Make sure you accent that characteristic and drive the viewer's focus to it. Do not make the blunder of trying to make the whole scene equally important. You require a star.
