How to make great landscape photos?
Use a tripod. Required attribute for a flat horizon in the photo and a clear shot. Yes, the tripod can’t always be accommodated in a backpack, but small models will definitely help you.
Find the center of composition. For any photo, you need a visual center. It can be any object: an animal, a tree or a river — it doesn’t matter. This should attract attention to the photo.
The sky on the photo. Another inseparable element is the sky and its reflection in the water. The secret of landscape photography is that the image is dominated by the sky or foreground. If the sky is uninteresting — lift the horizon line. But when the sky is full of dramatic take him a little more space.
Record the movement. There is nothing better than photographing wildlife in dynamics. So the pictures will be more interesting and spectacular.
Check the horizon. The oldest advice, but it doesn’t lose its relevance today. Before you finally press the shutter release of the camera, check the horizon line.
Change the viewpoint. Look at the landscape, turn in one direction and in another, change the angle, move the horizon line or try to include additional elements in the composition. The result may be unexpected!
Depth of the photo. A good landscape must have depth. Try to select the shooting point in such a way that the photos have both close objects (foreground) and distant objects (background). Ideally, if there is a smooth transition between plans, for example, a stream flowing from the background to the front.
Perfect light. The best time to shoot is the sunset time. The golden light looks amazing and highlights the landscape.
Filters. On a bright day, photos can be improved not only in Instagram, keeping sunglasses in front of the lens of a smartphone or camera.
Have enough patience. Nature is changeable and fickle thing, for a good shot you can hunt for a long time.
