The best way 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 in order to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are very critical. Apart from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have 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 colours.
I've commonly seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows as well as the effect of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness 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, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can appear divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are essential not only because they bring in a feeling 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 shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of late day the morning while dawn and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself profitable results.
