Landscape Photography

Good photos in landscape photography not created in an instant. It is relatively unimportant whether you like just before the falls or the cornfield around the corner New Zealand, although the latter design looks not quite as spectacular. The Cornfield, or the nearby forest, however, is perfect as an entry motive because yes you can quite easily reach these places as well as at any time.

The early bird gets the worm - also in landscape photography
And in an appealing light mood and matching weather conditions can be a really adorable motif also the cornfield! The right lighting effect to capture great scenes one finds mostly at dawn or dusk or dawn or sunset. In this called blue hour period the light is diffuse, the color temperature of the sun warmer and the shadows longer and not nearly as hard as at full afternoon sun. The sunrise can sometimes create an even more beautiful light, because the air is still fresh and clear to these initial days, which has a positive effect on the mood of the image. In nature photography, there are also elements like morning dew on leaves, which is why one prefers to sunrise the sunset. But but you have unfortunately crawl out of bed early, which most people (including me) is very difficult. Unfortunately, extraordinary recordings also require uncomfortable steps. In this context, I would recommend the article "The best time to take pictures" on neunzehn72 who extensively busy themselves, including many great picture examples!

I recommend you to try the whole time with the cornfield or the forest around the corner. Choose a specific scene in your area and take pictures at different times of day and weather conditions. Compare the recordings then another. So you get quickly a good sense of what time of day and what the weather is the extent to which affect the light mood.

Despite an appealing design not ideal lighting situation (excessive contrasts, hard light / shadow)
Landscape Photography - better with tripod and remote release
In landscape photography applies when it comes to the focus distance, similar as for architectural shots. To depict the entire landscape sharply, You need a more closed aperture from F8. For landscapes, fine details also are very important, which is why a lower ISO value is required. The consequence, which arises from the fact have longer exposure times, suggesting the use of a tripod recommended to appear. This can be especially in winter when even aufgehendem Sonnnenlicht the case. With longer exposure times, even here it is advisable to use a remote switch to shake the image by pressing the shutter button on the camera to avoid.

The right lens - wide angle or normal lens?
Depending on the subject, choice of perspective and taste different focal lengths in landscape photography can be necessary. First a wide angle lenses come to mind that can capture a lot of the scenery. For many situations, these lenses are also quite suitable. But even if you want to see the beautiful scenery as much as possible on the screen, it can sometimes be suboptimal, short focal lengths to use the wide angle end. Shown details that are very far away, are represented with this focal range usually far too small. The risk is great that the view of the essentials by too many items will be diluted in the photo. Try it once with a standard lens (50mm). In order to not get "everything" on's image, but can concentrate on individual, interesting image sections and this stress.
