Get quick with your shutter finger. The longer it takes to shoot the picture, the greater the chance of something going amiss. Your subject could move, go away or something else such as lighting can affect the shot you wanted to take. The faster you can snap a photo, the better.
Create depth when you shoot landscapes. Provide the viewer with an understanding of the scale for the photo by placing a person in the picture’s foreground. You can increase the overall sharpness of your picture by using a small aperture set appropriately for the type of camera you are using.
Despite the general view that sun-filled days make for good pictures, the reality is that a sunlit day can make for bad pictures It can create uneven highlights, awkward shadows and cause subjects to squint. If you can, take outdoors pictures early in the day or toward the evening.
Often a photographer will be so concerned with a landscape background that he neglects the details in the foreground. However, this is the first place the viewer’s eye will land. Put more time into composing your shot’s foreground to create more striking and deep photographs.
Experiment with you camera’s shutter speed settings. Learn the uses of the different shutter speeds. On your SLR camera there are several settings; S, A, M and P. P is for program mode. This function is for your camera to automatically detect various aspects of lighting and will adjust the shutter speed and aperture for you. If you do not know what you will be taking a picture of, have the “P” setting on.
