The best way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is 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 are extremely critical and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential 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 colors.
I have commonly seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are the ones that make fascinating use 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 as well as the effect of side and backlighting. Particular angles of light bring an incredible effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to tap on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

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 finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays 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.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally!
