An outstanding landscape photograph can inspire awe and wonder for the natural world. The first step is choosing a dramatic scene or an unusual combination of visual elements. Effective composition usually combines an interesting foreground with a notable background, while sharp focus throughout the photograph can enhance visual interest. Color and light are integral elements to dramatic photography.
Sunrise and sunset, when the sun is low and light is filtered through atmospheric particles, allow for enhanced warm colors that beautifully light clouds and landscapes. Capturing movement such as wind through trees or water flowing is another effective way to create interest, and using a tripod can help a photographer keep the camera still during these long exposures.
