The best way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the greatest of light.
I have commonly seen that photos that win competitions are often the ones that 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 and also the impact of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary 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 aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can seem heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the ocean or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the wee hours of late afternoon the morning while dawn and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself profitable results.
