This is my first Dslr, i love taking scenery/landscape photos, i dont really care about video at all, just learning how to take great photos on my travels….any tips to start off on the right foot would be great

Best answer:

Answer by This is me talkin’ dude!
In my view… I don’t think tere are any ”tips” or a ”right way to take pics”.. you just take your camera with you and take shots of whatever yo feel like.. whatever inspies you and whatever you feel like should be in your photo album..;))

I LOVE TAKIN’ PICS TOO!!!!!It just needs fantasy, inspiration and of course passion!!!That’s all it takes!!

    I think that Scott Kelby writes really good books, I had great help with this book when i began shooting:

    First, pay no attention to “This is me talkin’ dude!”. If you do, all you’ll ever do is take poorly done snapshots.

    Second, if you really like landscape photography invest in a good tripod. Landscape photography calls for a deep depth of field and use of a slow ISO such as 100 and that translates into a shutter speed too slow to hand-hold even with an IS lens. A tripod also makes it easier to keep the horizon horizontal. Nothing ruins a landscape picture faster than a tilted horizon.

    http://www.cowboystudio.com/product_p/triple%bubble.htm I use this to make sure my camera is perfectly level.

    Learn about Light, Exposure, Composition and Depth of Field (DOF).

    LIGHT

    My favorite time to be out making landscape pictures is the first 2 or 3 hours after sunrise.

    EXPOSURE

    Although I shoot my landscapes in Aperture Priority I still know and use the Exposure Triangle.

    COMPOSITION

    DEPTH of FIELD

    Knowing what DOF is and how to control it and when to use a deep or shallow DOF will greatly enhance your photography.

    Deep DOF:

    Shallow DOF:

    Now do you have a better understanding of why I advised you to ignore “This is me talkin’ dude!”?

    Good photography requires THINKING. You have to train yourself to actually THINK about Light, Exposure, Composition and DOF before you release the shutter.

    Learning about photography is an on-going, never ending experience.

    I highly recommend this book:

    http://www.amazon.com/BetterPhoto-Basics-Absolute-Beginners-Taking/dp/081740502X/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1279567421&sr=1-3

    (and also suggest you fully ignore “this is me talking dude”. Mindlessly “taking pics” with your “passion” teaches you nothing and you never have anything better than typical, amateur snapshots like the millions of bozos on Facebook)
