Landscape Photographylacks a human element and is intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic.
You don't take a photograph, you make it. - Ansel Adams
Maximize your Depth of FieldEnsure that as much of your scene is in focus as possible.
Look for a Focal PointWithout one a landscape looks empty. Focal points can take many forms building/structure, striking tree, boulder or rock formation, silhouette etc. Think about where you place it. think rule of thirds.
ForegroundsThink carefully about the foreground of your shots and place points of interest in them this gives viewers a way into the image as well as creating a sense of depth in your shot.
LinesOne of the best ways to lead a viewers eye into a shot is to provide lines that lead them into an image. Lines give an image depth, scale and can be a point of interest by creating patterns in your shot.
Change your Point of ViewTake more time with your shots by finding a more interesting point of view. Find a different spot to shoot from wander down or off paths, look for new angles, get down on ground or find a higher up vantage point.
Consider the SkyIf the sky is filled with drama and interesting cloud formations and colors let it shine by placing the horizon low in your shot.
Golden HoursGreat shooting times are dawn and dusk golden light can create interesting patterns, dimensions, shadows and textures.
ReflectionsLandscapes reflected in water add a greater and more interesting dimension.
