How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colours and with the greatest of light.
I've commonly seen that photographs 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 the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows along with the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness 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 dazzling light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are crucial 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 golden light bouncing off the ocean, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not 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 during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you can guarantee yourself profitable results.
