The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the top of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resultant picture and are extremely vital. Aside from backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors and with the very best of light.
I've often seen that photographs that win competitions are often the ones that make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are complex along with the result of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is always to tap these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself profitable results.
