We have summed up 10 techniques for making good scenery. Friends who love to make scenery must not miss them.
I. Capturing the Beautiful Light in the Morning and Dusk
Charming light and shadow, delicate layers and gorgeous colors are the life of landscape photography. The golden time of landscape photography is around sunrise and sunset, so waiting patiently is a compulsory course of landscape photography. In such a shooting period, the color temperature of light is low, and the changes of light and shade and color are very rapid, which can bring different light and shadow effects to the picture and inspire the photographer to take more expressive pictures. Some photographers wait for several days to capture the instantaneous light and shadows in the sky and the brilliance of the clouds. Whether taking pictures of mountains, lakes, seas or fields, using the light at dawn and dusk, we can take pictures with delicate and soft, strong stereo and rich tones. It should be noted that in such a period of time shooting is easy to overexpose the problem, so remember to carefully select the photometric point to measure light accurately. In addition, trying to use fluorescent white balance, or shooting in RAW format, can often bring you some surprises.
2. Strengthen the effect of the picture with clouds
Clouds are a good helper to enhance the effect of scenery pictures. White clouds make the scenery fresh and shining; brilliant clouds make the picture glorious and moving; heavy clouds make people full of mysterious reverie about the story behind the scenery. Choosing attractive weather and time to capture the most beautiful form of clouds in the ever-changing world can often play a role in balancing the picture and enhancing momentum.
The rhythm and rhythm of repeated lines
Landscape photography pays attention to the beauty of form, so it pays special attention to the design and application of lines. Repetitive lines are attractive subjects in landscape photography. They can bring rhythm and rhythm beauty to the picture.
IV. Use Reflections to Enlarge Expressiveness
Reflections can bring interesting visual pleasure to the picture. When shooting at the quiet lakeside, dramatic reflections can be incorporated into the picture. In the quiet and steady state, the extension and repetition of the picture can effectively expand the scope of expression and expressive force. Enabling the function of reference line can better grasp the level of symmetry line.
5. Use Prospects to Enhance Space Sense
Prospect is an important element that cannot be ignored in landscape photography. When shooting, don't focus entirely on the main body you want to show. You should carefully observe the surrounding environment, find the right prospect to increase the sense of space and depth of the picture, so that the picture is more appealing.
6. Panoramic photographs show magnificent scenery
Most of the time, the scenery in front of us is very attractive, even with wide-angle lens can not be fully included in the picture. At this time, panoramic photographs are an effective means of showing magnificent scenery. To take panoramic photographs, three things should be kept unchanged: fixed shooting position; fixed focal length of lens; fixed aperture and shutter combination. At the same time, pay attention to maintaining the camera level, in order to take a set of photos with the same view and exposure. Stitching them together can produce spectacular panoramic works.
7. Novelty Visual Experience of Slow Shutter
Whether it's shooting streams, waterfalls, or traffic in the night scene, using a slow shutter less than a quarter of a second often gives people a novel visual experience. Enabling long exposure can reduce noise points to achieve better picture quality.
8. Great scenery pays attention to blank space
When expressing the vast scenery of a large scene, we should pay attention to leaving enough "blank" in the picture to avoid the picture being too full. This kind of space is often called "blank". It is always refreshing to see such works.
9. Pay attention to the guiding role of lines
The unique outline and shape of lines can easily attract the attention of the audience. In landscape photography, it is very important to find and discover lines, which can guide the viewer's vision and make the subject more prominent and beautiful.
10. Choosing the Appropriate Angle of Shooting
Choosing the appropriate shooting angle according to the theme and performance effect is the key to shooting a good work. This work is shooting from a downward angle, showing all the pictures from near-range to long-range with a small aperture, showing the level and depth of the pictures.
