How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, 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 are very crucial and play an important role in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colours.
I've commonly seen that photos that win contests in many cases are the ones which 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 and also the result of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular 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 always to exploit 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 brilliant light and angle can look celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, 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.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also the brink 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'll be able to guarantee yourself fruitful results.
