Landscaping pictures – The most important is WHEN you take pictures. According photographer Scott Kelly is the only 2 times a day to take landscape photos. The first is the sunrise; you can take pictures around 15-30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes to 1 hour after sunrise. The second time is sunset. You can take photos 15-30 min before sunset and until 30 minutes after. These are the only two times during the day where you can get the soft, warm light and soft shadows. .
Another good tip to take great landscaping pictures is to acquire one stand. Among the best photographers there is no thing called handheld-landscaping photography. Always use one stand. The reason for that is that the light you are shooting in (sunrise / sunset) makes images often unfocused and blurry if you do not hold the camera steady. The pictures should be “aperture priority mode”, i.e. Aveng the mode dial on the Canon and A at the Nikon. This is a very popular mode because the options are many, you can do most of the settings manually.
Should you take pictures of water, there are several great tips to get it to be fantastic landscaping pictures. When you look at pictures of professional photographers have taken it seems as if the water is smooth, shiny and silky. When you go and try even gets not exactly the same result. The secret is to let the shutter speed be open longer than two seconds. This allows the water moves while everything else (trees, plants, rocks) is stationary. The fact that water moves further while taking the picture makes you get the silk-like effect.
