The N-Photo experts say…
Look for a cluster of rocks, a tree stump or any other interesting feature or object that you can use in the foreground of your landscape shots. Make sure it has context. too: if you’re at the beach, for instance, include a pool of water or lines in the sand.
Use a strong neutral density (ND) filter to enable you to shoot long exposures in bright conditions. A 10-stop ND filter may enable you to keep the shutter open for around 30 seconds or more, even in the brightest daylight.
GO FOR GOLD
The hours just after sunrise or just before sunset are known as the Golden Hours, as they offer beautiful warm light that enhances many landscape scenes. Sunrises are often accompanied by low-lying stratus cloud, which can soften shadows.
BANISH BLUE SKIES
If you’re looking to capture dramatic skies with plenty of interesting texture and detail, don’t plan to go out when high pressure is forecast, as you’ll see nothing but blue. Wait for slightly more turbulent conditions to catch the moodiest skies.
