How to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colours and with the finest of light.
I've often seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows as well as the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. An extraordinary effect is lent by certain angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to harness these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can appear celestial. Use light to define your photos.
