One of the most popular forms of photography is landscape photography. Landscape photography captures scenic and unbelievable views of the beauty that resides all over the world. The most important elements of any great pictures you need to keep in mind are composition and the quality of light.
All you need to do to get some great landscape photos is to set your compact camera to ‘landscape mode’and follow these tips.
-Always take your landscape picture only when the horizon appears straight. -Fill two-thirds of your frame with the subject of most interest. -If your picture has lines, try framing your shot so that the major lines lead the eye toward the main point of interest. -Look out for clutter. If you can’t get the shot you want without the clutter, use a photo editor like Photoshop to remove it later.
