Keith W.Springer has inspired many budding photographers with his words of advice on how to get that perfect shot while attempting landscape photography. There are a few methods if and when followed yields some of the most satisfactory photographs that one can click. Maximizing the depthof your field is one thing that you can keep in mind while shooting a landscape; remember to keep a larger chunk of the scene in front of you within the focus. This can be done by selecting a small aperture setting as this is inversely proportional to the depth of your field.

Using a tripod to capture glimpses of the nature is not a bad idea, to some it may deem to be a cumbersome task but it sure does give an edge to the kind of photograph you take without it. The tripod is hugely helpful in when you want the aperture is small and you need the camera to be absolutely still.

Findinga focal point is one of the basic rules that one needs to follow while taking a photograph, all types of photographs need it and so does a landscape; for a landscape photograph it is more so otherwise the viewers will be left to wonder through a large expanse of the photograph and not find any object of awe in it. The focal point is the one that keeps your viewer glued to the photograph trying to comprehend the story you have intended to convey through it. The focal points in landscape photography can be anything between a building, a tree, a big boulder, or an even a bird perched on an unusual object of nature.

The uniqueness of your photograph can be enhanced by making sure you have an interesting foreground to it. Your foreground with several points of interest is what emphasizes the subject of your photograph. A sort of depth is created into your shot with this foreground and it sort of leads your viewer through a path before arriving at your subject creating a mood for the subject.

However, it important for an aspiring photographer to remember that it is not just the rules and tools that make a good photographer, you need to have the eye of a photographer.
