How to Create a Great Picture - Part 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 top of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very critical and play an important part in the resultant picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win contests are frequently the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows along with the result of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. Certain angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to harness these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful 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 appear divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best 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.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while dawn and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in 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 use the power of light and you can guarantee yourself profitable results.
