My background comes from commercial photography and has evolved over 30 years into fine-art and landscape photography.
1.) Herewith I want to share some secrete knowledge and teach you to get better picture with the camera you just happened to have it handy on you.
2.) This could be your iPhone, your Android Phone, a point of shoot camera or a DSLR with interchangeable lenses.
3.) Have your little or big gear with you when you are out about for a walk or any other outdoor activity.
4.) Do some homework in advance by locating or downloading your camera app or getting acquainted with your DSLR camera.
5.) With landscape/ cityscape photography the outdoor lighting quality is important to watch and know when and where would be a good time to be.
6.) If you are traveling and you may not come back to the same beautiful place again you can check some local gift stores in advance where they have greeting cards from the vicinity you are visiting. Don't try to copy it rather take some inspiration and shoot something in a way you would like to do it.
7.) Try to be different and enter some of your own feelings to it to make it fresh for your viewer and yourself.
The gear you may want to consider for your landscape photography:
You can just start with your mobile phone if you own one.
Things to know and consider if you do use your phone to get better pictures.
1.) Do not zoom in or out of convince with the phone application to compose and shoot your picture!
2.) The phone has a fixed lens build in which most of the time covers little bit beyond humans eyes in a wide angle range and zooming feature is more for viewing an image!
3.) You have many different free or paid Apps on your phone beside you already get when you purchased your smart-phone.
4.) As a cameras and like on your phone they have a small lens which you can see on the back side of your phone.
5.) To achieve sharp images with your smartphone it dose require time to time just to wipe the little lens from dust for better pictures.
6.) If you get excited of your results by being a "iphoneographer" get a little inexpensive but very quality effective little tripod for getting steady and sharper images.
7.) I promise you will not regret this little investment in a tripod like around $20-$50 in US.
8.) Once mounted your little cute phone on a tripod, compose and when you hit the button don't push it by hitting it away from you which can create blurry images by motion of your hand.
9.) Instead being smart in your approach, hit the button and hold and let go when ready. Your images will be much sharper with much of out of sharpness due to motion.
