The best way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational 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 to be able to get the best of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are extremely vital. Apart from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have 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 often seen that photos that win contests are frequently the ones which 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 also the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, sparkling light. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to tap on these angles. Be aware 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 heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, don't miss the early hours of late day the morning while dawn and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
