The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are very crucial. Besides backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colours and with the very best of light.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win contests in many cases are the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are intricate as well as the result of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can look heavenly. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late afternoon and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may guarantee yourself fruitful results.
