How to Shoot Landscape


You obviously want the landscape to look as spectaclular on your photo as it does in real life. The first tip is to pay attention to the lighting conditions. Generally the best time of the day is just after the sunrise and one hour before the sunset. It is called a Golden hour because it gives you soft shadows and warm glow that cast of everything.

Choosing the right location is also very important. You do need to turn your flash off. As the shutter speed is quite long when you shoot landscape, it is really advisable to steady your camera, preferably on a tripod. It will help you avoid any camera movement.

Of course you can shoot in the middle of the day too. You may experiment of how you do it.

Use landscape shooting mode or high aperture setting on your camera. People or other subjects like posts can give you a feel of perspective.

The rule of pro photographers is to place your subject off center, that way you can create a really beautiful image. Natural elements (like trees) can be used to frame your photo.
