I shoot mainly landscapes. And there are a lot of blog postings and articles in the internet advising us hot to take landscape photos.
I learned that we should always have a foreground, middle ground and background elements to give impressions of a 3 dimensional view in an already 2 dimensional piece of a photograph.
I also learned to incorporate and use photography composition such as Rule of Third, Angles, Leading Lines, Curves and other basic rules to compose a good picture.
My photography sifu (master teacher) always insisted that I used a tripod and cable shutter release to minimize camera shake to get a sharp picture.
And to top it all, for landscape photography, its sort of a strict religious rule to shoot during the Golden Hours i.e those few hours of sunrise and sunsets.
Did I leave anything out?
Please feel free to add your tips and advices in the comment column.
