The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important part in the resultant picture and are extremely crucial. Besides backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours.
I have often seen that photos that win contests are frequently the ones which 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, elaborate long shadows along with the impact of backlighting and side. Particular angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap 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 believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, 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 shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, do not miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late day and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you will ensure yourself fruitful results.
