To have a great photo landscape, the first thing you need to know is that of the countryside and the light effects. You need to have a good mastery of the land and experience the connection with nature. To survey the area, use your foot to explore the landscape and become part of the landscape before actually taking any picture.
During your walk try to look for: Light (shadows and highlights), shapes whether round or angular, the color and texture, composition, patterns, and mystery. Thus, the next time you might want to take a camera and shot an open hill photo on the mountaintop, furthermore, you need to show some detailed knowledge of the landscape so that you can get photographs of just a smaller section of the landscape.
While taking photographs, your personality and vision have a pivotal role to play. It simply relies on you to capture only the most essential aspect of the landscape, because if your photo is good, then the person viewing your photo might feel that they are capturing all the emotions of actually being there. A great landscape photograph is an excellent way of having a great escape.
