Taking good Outdoor/Landscape Shots

Sep 26, 2009 @ 19:52
so i mainly enjoy taking portrait type photos with a single focal point. the other day i was walkin around my campus. i was tryin to take pictures but i realized they werent really comin out very well. what do you guys suggest? any specific settings? high aperture? low aperture? low iso/ high? slow shutter? fast? maybe a certain lens?

i got a rebel xti with the kit lens btw.

thanks in advance

Imo for landscape shots and such get a wide angle lens like the Sigma 10-20mm. I use it and its a really good lens and does the job!

increase aperture so you get a wide depth of field. the "golden" hours for shooting out doors are right after sunrise or right before sunset. sometimes the sun washes out a lot of colors. if you can, shoot at the lowest ISO available.

panorama pictures it`s pretty cool, but you got to have photoshop to assemble all the images.
