The way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4

Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge

It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an important role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important 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 frequently seen that photographs that win contests are frequently the ones which make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and the effect of backlighting and side. An extraordinary effect is lent by certain angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are vital 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 beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the sea creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.

Needless to say, don't miss the wee hours of late afternoon, the morning while sunrise and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape pictures, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
