How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters play an essential role in the resulting picture and are very crucial. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember with the very best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've often seen that pictures that win contests are often the ones which make fascinating usage 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 also the result of side and backlighting. An incredible effect is lent by specific angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to exploit 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 brilliant light can seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical 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 beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold 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 afternoon, the morning while dawn and also the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
