How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is all 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 role in the resultant picture and are very vital. Besides backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember with the greatest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colours.
I have commonly seen that photographs that win competitions are frequently the ones that make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to tap on these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can appear heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a feeling 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 gold light bouncing off the sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the wee hours of the morning while sunrise, late day and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you can ensure yourself profitable results.
