How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely vital and play an important part in the resultant picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I've commonly seen that pictures 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, intricate long shadows along with the effect of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to harness on these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays 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.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of late day, the morning while dawn and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you can guarantee yourself fruitful results.
